Architecture Biennial Beijing 2010


The theme, ’Machinic Processes’, refers not only to new digital fabrication processes, such as CNC milling and 3-D printing, but also to the innovative use of new parametric and algorithmic design techniques. Since 2004 the adoption of these techniques in China has been rapid. The design of buildings such as the Birds Nest stadium would not have been feasible without the use of new parametric modeling techniques and Building Information Modeling software. Meanwhile, although the construction industry in China has relied heavily on manual labor in the past, digital fabrication technologies are beginning to play an increasingly important role in the construction of buildings throughout China, and are set to play an even more significant role in the future.
