Digital Revolution 2.0: The New Era in Fabrication

This abstract has open access
Abstract Summary

 In the wake of the second digital turn in architecture when computers have started developing their own logic (Carpo, 2017), this talk questions the opinion of Gershenfeld (2012) that ‘’a new digital revolution is coming, this time in fabrication’’. It searches the origins and the development of the idea of digital fabrication from antiquity to 21st century. Specific examples are presented towards the prospects of digital fabrication implemented with the emerging techniques of machine learning for achieving high quality, top speed and minimize the cost. Finally, it concludes to useful findings and questions for further research on the field.
