DIGITAL DESIGN & FABRICATION IN ARCHITECTURE

South Africa is one of the most fascinating places you’ll find and any opportunity to work there is a BLAST! Located in the hippest up-and-coming part of town a group of architecture students and professionals participated in this workshop where a Rhino & Grasshopper introduction was followed by a Design & Build Competition. The goal was to create three large-scale installations for the immediate neighbourhood with CNC-cut plywood and glass as main materials.
