Making Resilient Architecture
Edited by Jane Burry, Jenny E. Sabin, Bob Sheil, and Marilena Skavara
Fabricate 2020 is the fourth title in the FABRICATE series on the theme of digital fabrication and published in conjunction with a triennial conference (London, April 2020). The book features cutting-edge built projects and work-in-progress from both academia and practice. It brings together pioneers in design and making from across the fields of architecture, construction, engineering, manufacturing, materials technology and computation. Fabricate 2020 includes 32 illustrated articles punctuated by four conversations between world-leading experts from design to engineering, discussing themes such as drawing-to-production, behavioural composites, robotic assembly, and digital craft.
Bob Sheil is Professor in Architecture and Design through Production at the Bartlett School of Architecture UCL, and has been Director of School since 2014. He is the author of multiple book chapters, refereed papers, and articles on design, making and technology. He has co-designed and built six artefacts/built works, and his work has been exhibited internationally on 11 occasions.
Jane Burry is an architect, professor and Dean of the School of Design at Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia. She is lead author of The New Mathematics of Architecture, T&H, 2010, editor of Designing the Dynamic, Melbourne Books, 2013 and co-author of Prototyping for Architects, T&H 2016, and has over a hundred other publications.
Jenny E. Sabin is an architectural designer whose work is at the forefront of a new direction for 21st century architectural practice — one that investigates the intersections of architecture and science and applies insights and theories from biology and mathematics to the design of material structures. She is the Wiesenberger Associate Professor in the area of design and emerging technologies at Cornell University.
Marilena Skavara is a London-based architect and interaction designer. She is a co-founder and partner at Codica Ltd., a digital product design practice focused on outcome-driven innovation. Using high-fidelity prototyping and embedding design into agile development cycles, Codica delivers the real product experience in record time, maximising the opportunities for iteration and refinement.
