'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 from IAAC 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.
