Digital Adobe is an innovative research agenda oriented to producing architectural solutions with natural materials and additive manufacturing or 3d printing. The technology, developed in the applied research post graduate program Open Thesis Fabrication, enables to customize the form of a building on multiple scales. Tailoring, from the global form, to the resolution of the section of the wall, allows us to create highly performative structural and passive/climatic behavior.
Through the use of parametric modelling and performance evaluation methods in the project’s development, the project relies on an informed architectural design. Beyond the performance enabled through the design development, the project also develops efficient construction methods and material use: onsite robotics allows the use of local and natural materials for construction.
