Digital Fabrication is without doubt the most rapidly expanding territory in design today and is defining the early decades of the 21st century. In architecture, engineering, manufacturing and construction, advances in the way buildings are designed and made, are radically altering industrial output and production. The way in which the built environment is constructed and experienced is undergoing a revolution where computation permeates every aspect of the cycle of ideas from concept, to production, to use. FABRICATE was the first conference to address this subject in 2011 as a direct challenge to architects, manufacturers, academics and industrial enterprises. Both in 2011 and 2014, it gathered the best minds at work in this field and presented an unprecedented opportunity for knowledge exchange and networking. To date, FABRICATE still remains the only conference and publication series specialised in this area.
