DRAW.CUT.BUILD

Recently I have been researching for my dissertation and found this project called DRAW.CUT.BUILD, it is built by Keita Tajima and Zhi Xiong Chang(two former students of the Architectural Association) in London. It utilises the same fabrication in model making as in the construction both being drawn on a computer. The model has been laser cut and the 1:1 components have been CNC cut. This digital fabrication has removed the need for representation in architecture. The model that Keita and Xiong built is essentially the same as the realised building.

  1. Awesome post. The design aspect of architecture is particularly amazing to me. My New York website design team is always analyzing design in every respect, and architecture is no different. I think a lot of artists draw inspiration from great architecture. Thanks for posting.
