'fabclay' by starsk lara + nasim fashami + sasha jokic:
render of fabricating process in large scale
research aimed to explore a new digital fabrication system which is fully optimized, adaptive and human independent system has led
barcelona-based students sasha jokic, starsk lara and nasim fashami
to demonstrate a new vision in the construction process
of architecture. in terms of changing the logic of built from human as a constructor to machine, the project investigates the aspects
associated in its technological possibilities.
starting with traditional research methods of building with simple and accessible materials and continuing to expand on the connections
between structure and digital processes, the conception provides the capabilities to execute complex shapes emerging from mechanical
performances and material possibilities. by exploring the behavior of tangible substances, potential is given to the rise in developing
prototypes that can achieve a variation of different species in terms of scale, form and function.
