Coffee, Cake, CAD/CAM: Reinventing the Urban Diner
Authors: Martin Bechthold & Kimo Griggs
How do digital design and manufacturing technologies impact design and design practice? A studio taught by the authors at the Graduate School of Design pursued this question by re-visiting an urban type - the diner. Students used parametric design software to generate schemes for 5 different sites in the Boston area. Physical prototypes served as a proove of concept for innovative construction approaches and new materials.
