Coffee, Cake, CAD/CAM: Reinventing the Urban Diner

pubcov_coffe_cake_cad_camHow 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 prof of concept for innovative construction approaches and new materials.
