Abstract

Digitization has proliferated in architectural education and practice in the last several decades. Highly intricate and complex geometries are possible due to increasing computational power, yet when built require processes that typically are incompatible with existing manufacturing and building practices. In this essay, the studio and research laboratory Automated Architecture (AUAR) argue for the utilization of ‘discrete automation’ as an approach for design research that places the translation between experimental work, applied testing and prototyping at its center.
