Definition of innovative material scenarios through digitization processes

Sara Codarin, Marco Medici


The ongoing synergy between the digitization of the building process and new paradigms related to the production of architectural constructions and building elements, pave the way for the definition of new scenarios that are worth investigating. The recurring question, indeed, is how the most advanced digital techniques for material production can have a tangible impact on architecture and its morphological languages.  In the field of building design, the chance to turn digital data into matter represents a key point to deal with, in order to demonstrate the possibility to transfer actual benefits from other sectors related to the construction industry.
