From computational design, to material performance and manipulation, to robotic fabrication, FABRICATE will promote the full spectrum of research and creative practice currently occurring within architecture, construction, engineering, manufacturing, materials technology and computation.
Our Call for Work is open for submissions of built or partially built projects by individuals or collaborators in academia, practice and industry. We welcome submissions that examine how the latest digital design and fabrication technologies are enabling new creative and construction opportunities from component to building scales, the many novel techniques being developed to bridge the difficult gap that exists between digital modeling and its realization, material performance and manipulation, off-site and on-site construction, interdisciplinary education, economic and sustainable contexts.
The submission system opens on June 10, 2016. The initial submission is an abstract of 500 words with 10 images. The submissions will be reviewed by a panel of experts and those selected will be featured in the FABRICATE publication. A smaller selection of projects will be presented at the conference.
