Idea Code 20256

This instalment of the magazine examines the application of computational design and digital fabrication across a spectrum of materials and scales, from a free-form high-rise exoskeleton by Zaha Hadid Architects or biomimetic wearables by Neri Oxman and the Mediated Matter Group at MIT, to the printed structure of a nonstandard brick, developed by Sabin Lab at Cornell University. With a selection of fourteen projects by designers and architects working in cross-disciplinary ways, it explores what can be achieved by “thinking digitally” and raises questions about the relationship between natural systems, digital technology, and the shaping of the material environment.
