asbjørn sondergaard

Asbjørn Søndergaard is an architect working in the field of digital fabrication in its relation to architectural design. He is educated from Aarhus School of Architecture, and founder of Design|Compute, a design firm framing architectural design experimentation in the field of structural optimization and computationel tools. His research based work focuses on morphogenetic processes and the development of novel structural logics in relation to numerical fabrication techniques. In collaboration with civil engineer Per Dombernowsky, he has been responsible for the elaboration of structural optimization case studies and design of a full scale prototype structure within the collaborate research project […]

Martin Tamke, is Associate Professor at the Centre for Information Technology and Architecture (CITA) at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture in Copenhagen he is pursuing a design led research on the interface and implications of computational design and its materialization.
Being interested in the making as well as the reflection on new strategies in architectural design he worked after graduation at the Institute of Theory and Design in Architecture (ige) at TU Braunschweig in 2003, where he got in contact with scientific research in interdisciplinary projects, mainly […]

mette ramsgard thomsen

institution:     CITA Centre for IT and Architecture, Kunstakademiets Arkitektskole


Mette Ramsgard Thomsen is an architect working with digital technologies. Her research centres on the relationship between crafts and technology framed through “Digital Crafting” as way of questioning how computation, code and fabrication challenge architectural thinking and material practices. Her work is practice lead and through projects such as Slow Furl, Strange Metabolisms, Vivisection and Sea Unsea she investigates the design and realisation of a behavioural space.

Mette is Associate Professor at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, where she heads the Centre for Information Technology […]

Welcome to the Digital Crafting Network

The research network investigates how new digital production methods are instigating profound changes in the design and building of architecture. Developing the term digital crafting, the network examines how the maturing of interfaces between the design space of the architect and the production space of the manufacturer is leading to the shaping of a new material practice in architecture. The research network is supported by The Danish Council for Independent Research, Humanities.

The networks result have been documented in a report that can be read online here . If you are interested in obtaining a hardcopy or higher resolution pdf please […]
