9780470868492: Blurring the Lines: Computer-Aided Design and Manufacturing in Contemporary Architecture

In architecture, the interface between CAD (computer-aided drawing tools) and CAM (computer-aided manufacturing tools) is a hot topic. For architects, it offers the opportunity to work in a totally new way and regain full control of the construction and manufacture of their buildings.

This book consists primarily of essays and case studies explaining and demonstrating the state-of-the-art in CAD/CAM applications for buildings. It aims to highlight critical questions and assumptions underlying the use of computers in the design and production of buildings as well as provide practical advice to practitioners interested in realising such projects.

  • Includes case studies to demonstrate how CAD/ CAM applications have been used in completed buildings
  • A â??resource and referenceâ?? section at the back of the book provides additional information and expertise
  • Highlights critical questions and assumptions underlying the use of computers in the design and production of buildings
  • Provides practical advice to practitioners

From the Back Cover:

The first few years of the 21stcentury have seen a revolution in the ways that we think about designing and making buildings. In no other area is this more apparent than in the interface of computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacture (CAM). The potential blurring or assimilation of these two systems holds the still allusive but golden promise of a direct, smooth transference of design data into large-scale production facilities in which components are directly cut, modelled and moulded. How far off are we from seeing the widespread adoption of this technology? What is the potential for CAD/CAM beyond tailor-made forms? In the future, what is the possibility of complex, large-scale modelling being run out in mass-customised buildings?

Blurring the Lines draws together the expertise of both architects and engineers who are working at the fore in this field, with contributions from Mark Burry, Lars Hesselgren, Kristina Shea and ShoP Architects. In addition to essays on key topics, covering the intersection of CAD-CAM techniques, case studies are featured that bring into focus these pioneering technologies. These include among others: Gehry’s D2 Bank Conference Hall; Nox Architects’ Son-O-House; Piano’s Paul Klee Museum; Cook and Fournier’s Kunsthaus Graz; and Massie’s Digital Housings.
