This is a great article about why architects really don’t need to worry about AI ever (or at least in the perceivable future) replacing the human decision making process. It is just another confirmation of the little phrase (I forget who said it) ” automate when possible”. Basically it boils down to computers are good a crunching large amounts of data (which, honestly, we humans don’t do so well at) and human excel at spontaneous, intuitive and sometimes, illogical decision making (something computers will likely never be able to accomplish, even if we can make them mimic us). But don’t … Continue reading Is Architecture in danger from automated design?. . . . Not likely, see why….
I had the honor some months back of being one of three presenters during a discussion around the disruptive nature of 3D printing in the AEC industry. I recently found the recording of the full webinar on line and couldn’t resit sharing with everyone. Take a look… Continue reading 3D Printing as Disruptive Innovation in Emerging Practice… AIA Practice Management Webinar
Couldn’t help but share this wonderful extruded plastic project by DesignLabWorkshop. Continue reading DesignLabWorkshop’s Solar Bytes Pavilion
I have always had a think for creative design solutions for passive system—as many of my architectural and designer colleges do as well I am sure—and I couldn’t help but want to share this very innovative solution one IaaC student came up with. Continue reading A really innovative passive cooling system from an IaaC student…
For those of you that have wondered when we would see 3D printed buildings… the day is here. The biggest hurdle was getting the rebar in and they were able to solve this rather well. Again though, this is China, and it might be a little while before we see this in the US but its a start. So hats of to the team who did this project… Continue reading 3D Printed building…
Here some of the photos of the recent project. More to follow soon. Also look for it on http://www.DesnFab.com Designed and Fabricated by Jeremy Luebker Andrea Springer Continue reading P.A.D.S. _ Pneumatically Actuated Deployable Structures [Recent work]
An Architectural Revolution Rigital Production and Fabrication By Jeremy Luebker MS Proseminar University of Michigan Milton S. F. Curry October, 18th 2012 “Architecture or revolution. Revolution can be avoided.” – Le Corbusier The production and fabrication of architecture has been a concept of particular interest, especially in the last six or seven decades in the United States. One might ask, “Isn’t architecture inherently about the making of things? So what is the significance of the interest in production? Isn’t production, just another means of construction?” Granted architecture is at its core about the making of things, whether physical or … Continue reading An Architectural Revolution: Digial Production and Fabrication
