New Technology Sparks artistic expressions in UH Student Architecture Projects
The projects will be on view from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., May 7 – 8 in the Atrium of the College of Architecture. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
Digital fabrication refers to objects and prototypes designed and generated on computers using three-dimensional software and specialized equipment. It is attractive for the accuracy and quality of its components and the conservation of time and materials.
“It’s really part of a renaissance in architecture,” Santiago Perez, assistant professor of architecture, said. The projects are part of his studio class, Domestic Fabrication. “This is a marriage of the technical and the artistic, and it is creating a new generation of designers who have artistic vision and computational precision.”
The college soon will open a new facility dedicated to fabrication technology.
