Robotic Fabrication Studio @ Hyperbody If you like it, share it! MSc2 studio – 1:1 prototypes Whole studio project was initialized by Hyperbody research group at the Faculty of Architecture in TU Delft University . Jelle Feringa was leading the course and provided us with all needed infrastructure. Special thanks should also be given to guys from ROK office – Matthias Rippmann and Silvan Oesterle, they were kind enough to come to Delft and teach us how to make the best use of Rhino-Vault plugin , which they themselves develop. Fab Labs As digital fabrication grows in popularity, innovators in education are recognizing the enormous potential that Fab Labs and other maker spaces can bring to students in a school environment. As the technology of digital fabrication becomes more readily available, affordable and easy to use, the potential for digital fabrication in schools is becoming a reality. However, Fab Labs and maker spaces as conceived are not built to serve the distinct needs of a school district. This is where FabEd comes into play. TIES, together with the Fab Foundation, is responding to the growing needs of educational institutions across the globe for innovative and engaging learning spaces.
Studio "I picked this set up at B&N. It's worth the purchase for any fan of architecture or design.

This large-scale building kit helps kids learn about engineering, architecture, and design through play The Rigamajig is a 263-piece large-scale building kit for children, which comes with no instructions or directions, but instead encourages kids to follow their own curiosity to learn about engineering, design, architecture, art, and science, through playing. Sometimes kids learn best through free play, curiosity, and collaboration, and their imaginations can be sparked by just giving them the materials and free reign to create whatever they want. And now, thanks to a new kind of large-scale building kit, kids can get plenty of hands-on experience creating their own structures, machines, and inventions, learning about design and architecture and engineering at the same time. Cas Holman, an industrial designer at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), was asked to design 'play opportunities' for Manhattan's High Line park in 2011, and her solution, described as a "popup playground" was realized in 2011 as the High Line Children's Workyard Kit. © Rigamajig
Data Toolkit - KWMC In order to do this we’ve produced the Data Toolkit – a step-by-step guide to gathering and visualising information – or ‘data’ – in creative ways, and involving interns and trainees in the process. What is the Toolkit? The website www.datatoolkit.org.uk includes templates, case studies, ethics guidance, technical assistance, and animations based on the experiences of seven interns, who worked on data projects at KWMC over six months in 2013-2014. Organisations are encouraged to use and adapt the Toolkit to suit their aims, budget and context.
LIFT architects - Home - [Andrew Payne] It has been entirely too long since I last posted but that should change over the coming weeks as I've been working on some really amazing projects. To kick things off, I thought I'd share a one week project that I developed to create a dimple halftone pattern on a surface using a custom build Grasshopper definition which writes the all of the G-code (for a ShopBot CNC mill) in real-time. I'll talk more about the fabrication setup below, but first... a little about the concept. I've always been fascinated with the skeletal patterns of Radiolarians (a family of microscopic protozoa that float along the ocean floor).
Do It Together Bio - Waag Society Waag Society connects her activities in the field of biotechnology and the relation between art, design and science to the Fablab methodology. In the Waag building, an Open Wetlab will arise where amateurs work on biotechnology. A part of the technology will be developed during workshops.
