Digital Turn, Design Computation Lab


Design Computation Lab will be the first 'turn' in the Digital Turn exhibition series, starting 20 June 2018.

Mon  Fri: 9.00am – 6.00pm
Sat: 10.00am   5.00pm

The Digital Turn exhibition series, curated by the exhibition team at The Building Centre, brings forward some of the best work from thought leaders in the field of digital construction.

The first 'turn' of the exhibition is in collaboration with Design Computation Lab (DCL), a research laboratory that develops novel design methods for the utilisation of computational technologies in architectural design, fabrication and assembly.

Based at The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL, the lab’s work is framed around the notion that we need to rethink the basic building blocks of architecture. It embodies a fundamental shift, one that demonstrates that a discrete and wholly digital architecture and design thinking can close gaps between how we design, fabricate and assemble buildings.

The exhibition and programme of events is curated by the exhibitions team at The Building Centre and is supported by The Built Environment Trust. We would like to thank Mollie Claypool, Gilles Retsin, Manuel Garcia and the rest of the DCL team for their involvement in the show.
