FABRICATE 2011 selects Peter Donders !

We are most pleased to announce that the international Peer Reviewed Conference and Publication, FABRICATE has selected Bench & Stone from designer Peter Donders to feature in the upcoming exhibition and publication.  Discussing the progressive integration of digital design with manufacturing processes, FABRICATE will bring together pioneers in design and making within architecture, construction, engineering, manufacturing, materials technology and computation.

FABRICATE: Making Digital Architecture‘ will be published and launched at the FABRICATE conference in April 2011. The term Digital Fabrication has been in broad circulation for over a decade and the argument that it is a revolutionary force for design and production is widely understood by the world’s leading practices and schools of architecture. New manufacturing tools have been invented and drawing software is bridging the gap between representation and realization. The publication comprises 32 illustrated articles on built projects. Punctuating these articles, a series of conversations between world leading experts from design to engineering, incl. Mark Burry, Philip Beesley, Gramazio & Kohler and Hanif Kara, discussing themes on drawing to production, behavioural composites, robotic assembly, and digital craft. This densely illustrated publication is intended to impart unequivocal evidence to the reader on how these projects were made, to encompass the breath, complexity and skill required in making digital architecture (i.e. its not as easy as some make out), and to impart the vitality of making as a collaborative and exciting practice.
