More Info

Organised by Tim Schork and Dr John Sadar from the Department of Architecture, MADA, Melbourne, Australia, in partnership with Grimshaw Architects, this workshop explored how a new digital practice can lead to a reintroduction of material, tectonic and constructional thinking into architectural design practice through applied research into masonry structures.

This workshop was organized as part of MADA’s transmaterial research event series, which investigates material innovation in the constructed environment.

The transmaterial research events series has been made possible by the generous support of veski.
