My Personal Factory

Digital Design Studio – My Personal Factory

Bachelor / Master / Diplom

15-01-2001 (B20)


Participants design and build a modular construction that creates a temporary, interactive and versatile space for digital fabrication.

We are currently experiencing the shift from personal computing to personal fabrication. After the computer shrunk from room size to smartphone dimensions we witness a similar development for CNC milling machines, 3D printers and laser cutters.

Production is returning back into our cities. The studio addresses this phenomenon and at the same time uses these digital technologies. Participants will learn the use of parametric design tools (Rhino/Grasshopper), robotic assembly and physical computing (Arduino).

No previous knowledge required. Studio will be taught in English and German.
