Digital Fabrication Roundtable – Participants Needed

Digital fabrication is changing the way we make architecture. From CNC machining to 3D printing, the next generation of fabrication techniques is opening up new opportunities for design speculation as well as for addressing building performance. While many of these fabrication techniques have been in development for a number of decades, it is only now that they are beginning to enter the public discourse in Ontario, challenging traditional ways of making buildings and components. 

In order to better understand the future of digital fabrication in Ontario and how the Association can help support the work of our members, the OAA is holding a Digital Fabrication Roundtable between the last week of March and first week of April.

The roundtable aims to bring together practioners and experts using digital fabrication in the production of architecture to discuss the opportunities and obstacles faced in Ontario when implementing digital fabrication. Your expertise and input will be invaluable in helping the Association better respond to emerging issues and act proactively to support technologies which improve Ontario’s architecture.

If you are interested in participating and have digital fabrication experience, please submit a resume and letter of interest to Joel Leon by February 24, 2016.
