FABRICATE 2011: Call For Papers

Call for Work Announced
International Peer Reviewed Conference and Publication,
London, 15-16 April 2011
Deadline 10 September 2010
Central to the aim of FABRICATE is to interrogate and disseminate architectural innovation in design and making practices accross industry and academia. Submissions will be independently blind reviewed by two members of an international panel of experts.
As the conference is seeking to ‘break the mould’ in gathering and publishing innovative built or partially built material, the call for works emphasises a very high standard of diverse visual content to accompany text. It is recommended that submissions include an appropriate range of images including concept sketches, early iterations, CAD and physical models, photography, manufacturing or construction information, scripting, test pieces, prototypes, parallel experiments, final assemblies, artefacts in use, revisions, renovations, subsequent iterations, as well as information on the spaces in which such works were created.
Our online submission system will go online on 9 August 2011. The Call for Work deadline is the 10 September 2011.

REPEAT: Digital Fabrication Competition 2010

REPEAT as an international competition is established to foster the creative spirit in the burgeoning field of digital fabrication.
We encourage the generation of cutting edge design proposals for a structure of your design with the only caveats being it be generated and conceived digitally, incorporate repetitive elements, be optimized for relocation and transportation and be produced through fabrication technologies available within Houston, Texas.
judging + criteria: The evaluation of all the REPEAT proposals will focus on the cohesion of the design concept to digital fabrication techniques and methods of assembly. Factoring in these two foundational requirements for the competition, the entrant is encouraged to propose a solution that is both formally challenging in the mechanics and aesthetics of the connections, but also speak to the issues of use and performance. The REPEAT jury is comprised of 5 internationally recognized architects:
  • JUNE 16, 2010 (Online Registration and Competition Regulations Available to the Public)
  • AUGUST 16, 2010 (Questions Due to TEX-FAB via Email)
  • OCTOBER 3, 2010 (Online Submission of Entries (Due Midnight) 12:00 AM CST)
  • OCTOBER 24, 2010 (Jury Awards Made Public)
  • NOVEMBER, 2010 – FEBRUARY, 2011 (Winning Design is developed, fabricated and installed in Houston)

MAMM Medellín: F.L.O.W. Exhibition

Pocas veces en una ciudad latinoamericana y de manera autogestionaria se produce la integración de paises de tres continentes de manera remota, coincidiendo en facilitar a estudiantes sus perspectivas sobre la visión de la  fabricación y diseño generativo. Después de 4 días de intenso trabajo, el FabLab Medellín bajo la dirección de Gabriel Ochoa presentan el 3 de Julio el resultado del trabajo realizado. El Museo de Arte Moderno (MAMM)de Medellín acoge esta muestra que marca uno de los logros en latinoamérica por mantenerse en la vanguardia digital.
