Crafting The Future

by Virginia San Fratello

This presentation will focus on the future of crafting 3D printed architecture and the built environment through the use of innovative, accessible and recycled materials. The term craft traditionally refers to a specialized skill in making but more recently the term crafting has emerged as a form of DIY and self-expression. Through the exploration of future manufacturing technologies such as 3D printing, local, inexpensive and readily available materials including clay and salt, Emerging Objects is exploring how technology and material promote the crafting of novel, customized architectural products that will serve as the building blocks of the future.
