Where engineering meets design is by no means a physically local site. A group of international minds – Sasha Jokic, Starsk Lara, and Nasim Fashami – has united at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of California (IAAC) to pursue a new digital fabrication system, FabClay, which is optimized and adaptive without the aid of a human operator. The research group showcases the tool, a sort of machine head that spouts a stream of clay to layer the material in forming a three-dimensional object. Somewhat similar to a 3D printer, FabClay works on a curvilinear basis instead of a planar one, which lends further flexibility and control over complex design details.
