These projects explore how the shaping and forming of materials influence the shape and form of our built environment through the constructions and technologies developed to fabricate them. In the case of some materials we have not even skimmed the construction possibilities inherent in them. As the methods of fabrication change new chances arrive for architecture. But we are not intent on solely looking forward in respect to materials and fabrication, older methods and points of view which have not been fully appreciated are observed and reassessed.
