Expeditions in Digital Technologies

We are living in the world of constant transformation. The exploration and application of digital fabrication processes have opened new realms of possibilities for architectural expression. In recent times, Additive Manufacturing techniques have gained momentum to explore and develop complex forms using different materials that enables us to redefine the existing systems and methods of construction within the domain of product design, interior design, and architecture. The course thus intends to explore the potential of Additive Manufacturing technology and computational tools to evolve a design process and innovative construction methods, to develop a product / interior architecture element within a defined context. The course will equip the students with skills in coding and digital fabrication processes to design, develop, analyze, resolve and construct scaled prototypes. The course will be divided into three modules-Exploration, Application, and Making with each module focusing on developing different digital, analytical, and hands-on learning skills.
