We spend most of our time in built spaces that substantially affect our health, well-being, and productivity. The built environment has a large influence on climate change, mainly due to the energy we use to keep acceptable levels of indoor comfort. Yet, we are still systematically measuring high occupant dissatisfaction, even in green certified spaces, particularly with acoustics, air quality and thermal comfort. How can we enhance occupant satisfaction without increasing our environmental impact?

For architecture, digital fabrication is not only to make special building components, but ultimately create form and space. Archi-solution Workshop (ASW), a small group from Beijing China, has designed and produced some digital architectural projects, which are mostly in human scale. Equipped with 50 house-made 3D printers in large output dimension and three KUKA robots, ASW takes algorithm as the generator of dataflow, which carries a serial of physical transformations.
