All bent out… built working knowledge of computer aided fabrication tools and software by encouraging students to experiment through focused material research. Workshops and lectures developed core competencies in machining and detailing, while a series of small-scale, built projects encouraged critical engagement with digital fabrication strategies through speculative making.
Exploration of various techniques for bending wood provided a platform to address issues of craft, efficiency, and control in design practice. CNC routing and water jet cutting were used to directly shape material and make intelligent form work for bending hardwoods.
