In the field of the available building materials and manufacturing techniques rapid developments are currently taking place. On the one hand, the ecological crisis and climate change are forcing the whole building practice in a sustainable and circular direction, on the other hand, the production of buildings is being revolutionised by 3D printers, 3D milling machines and robots. These developments also raise fundamental questions. What consequences will they have for traditional craftsmanship, for example, and how will the role of the architect in the design process change? What value will human creativity and architectural design still have as an expression of cultural values?
We want to explore these questions on the basis of work reports by experts from research, design and production practice. The workshops will focus on experiencing material qualities and constructive forces and learning to use them as sources of design. In the background is the question of whether a new paradigm is currently emerging in architecture and which aspects should be integrated into it.
