This lecture challenges the negative attitude towards technology and computation in general and digital fabrication in particular—an attitude that is still prevalent in certain architectural circles, and argues instead for a more receptive approach based on the ideas of Gilles Deleuze. The lecture goes on to look at some of the latest developments in digital fabrication, including two NASA sponsored research projects to develop a robot to fabricate structures on the Moon and Mars.
