A few months ago we were approached by the organisers of Digital Construction Week, an event that takes place annually in London. It is the biggest exhibition of its kind about disruptive technologies in construction and the architecture industry. The DCW team was really excited to hear about FAB FEST and its previous outcomes and expressed interest in making a collaboration between the two events. A team of researchers and designers from the Fabrication Lab held workshops involving students and staff. The outcomes of the workshops were very rewarding. We have discovered how much the two events relate and how much we can learn from each other. So we decided to share this diagram produced by the DCW team to give an overview of where the construction industry is progressing. We couldn’t miss how relevant it is for you guys, at the design and concept development stage of your projects. We recognize the potential of submitted concept developments for FAB FEST and we want to encourage you to explore this diagram and share your thoughts. Maybe the next revolutionary idea is ready to emerge and we have all the needed tools to accommodate it.
Have a look and let us know what you think. We are excited to explore these ideas with you during the festival.
