Daughter of an Architect

As a daughter of an architect, you often wondered why other dads chose to pursue “boring jobs.” – As a daughter of an architect, a couple of your family’s vacations were planned solely to pick out Ikea furniture, which could only be picked out after the third day of browsing the store. – As a daughter of an architect, you have always used carpet samples for door mats. – As a daughter of an architect, your vacations were often interrupted by (or planned around) various famous buildings....

Prefabrication I

The predictable conditions of the factory floor can increase quality, speed, and safety, and coordinated fabrication can decrease construction waste and cost.

An unreasonable task to ask of a human bricklayer, but with the robot it becomes practical. Digital fabrication can bring craftsmanship back to construction.
