The course examined the fundamental principles of advanced digital prototyping and fabrication methods like Contouring, Folding, Paneling, Corbelling, and Cross-Sectioning forming for architecture and building design. It focuses on the inherent value of digital prototypes to evaluate the viability and performance of the design intent with respect to material selection, methods, and the implications of assembly to document the fabrication process.
