Fabricating in Mixed Reality

In this lecture, Cameron Newnham and Nick van den Berg discuss their work at Fologram, which investigates the implications of Mixed-Reality (MR) assembly methodologies on architectural design. Could making in mixed reality allow us to reconfigure CAD-CAM not as a means of working to high degrees of tolerance and precision but instead as a return to craftsmanship, intuition and reflexive making? How will the medium of MR enable new forms of collaboration between designers and manufacturers, between humans and machines? What could be the new architectural forms in this superposition of the digital and the craftsman?
Fologram is a Melbourne-based design-research practice and technology startup that builds a mixed-reality toolkit for designers and makers.
