    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.

  • Contour Crafting.
    MOON

    USC Professors Behrokh Khoshnevis (Engineering), Anders Carlson (Architecture), Neil Leach (Architecture) and Madhu Thangavelu (Astronautics) have been awarded a NASA research grant into the potential use of Contour Crafting robotic fabrication technology to build structures on the Moon. The grant was one of only 30 awarded to over 700 applicants by the NASA Innovation Advanced Concepts Program (NIAC). The title of their research proposal is: “Contour Crafting Simulation Plan for Lunar Settlement Infrastructure Build Up.”
