Recent advances in manufacturing and bio composite have open new opportunities for engineers and designers, allowing us to envision a high tech and light sustainable architecture based on natural materials. This workshop will explore a design to fabrication workflow, from the conception of parametric pattern to the robotic weaving of natural fiber reinforced by a biobased resin matrix.
