Traditional meets New: Materials / Technologies
In recent decades, the development of digital design tools and methods has had a major impact on both architectural and spatial practices. Not only does this development change the appearance of new buildings, but also their typological logic, socio-spatial quality, and material handling. The development of new materials is just as important as the innovative use of traditional construction methods: clay meets 3D printers, and traditional wood construction becomes a cutting edge resource. That is – if material production cycles can be rethought with industrial partners.
