One of the greatest areas of interest in contemporary architecture, especially among young architectural entrepreneurs, is the relationship between design and making—and how it can be tightened, particularly through new digital design and fabrication tools. This volume emerges from the 2014 Fabricate conference and focuses on the question of if and how innovations in the area of digital-material collaboration could become relevant at a large scale.
