    Overview[minti_divider style="3" icon="" margin="20px 0px 20px 0px"]

    The workshop Digital Design and Production in Architecture, organized by INDEXLAB - Politecnico di Milano, has the objective to offer a new vision on architecture and its manufacturing methodologies.
    As 20th Century’s architecture focused on mass production and serial repetition of its components, today’s one will be strongly characterized by varied and unique elements, industrially produced through advanced CNC fabrication machines. At the same time, the rise of novel programming platforms for design make it possible to generate processes and algorithms that allow the control of form and technological aspects from the first conceptual stages of the design till the construction phase. This makes possible to integrate aesthetics and functionality, structural resistance and energy performance within one coherent design process.
    In the process of definition such “design to production” workflow, both fabrication and material limits and potentials play a key role in generating competitive logical construction systems. Robots and CNC machinery contribute to the redefinition of design methodologies and construction processes, transferring most of manufacturing from the building site to industrial production, where advanced components, integrating structure and envelope, can be designed and fabricated into complex solutions with high aesthetic and functional value.
    The workshop aims at bringing together visionary companies, advanced designers and innovation-oriented students to envision new synergies between academic research, architectural practice and industrial production.
