As part of the Center for Design Research’s evolving technologies initiative, Nathan
King and Martin Angst have organized a series of remote lectures focusing on digital
design, fabrication, and robotics as part of their courses Future Making and Advanced
Design and Fabrication in Architecture, along with the CDR Material Pioneers program.
While a core part of the curriculum for the courses, these lectures may be of interest to
other students and faculty and therefore will open to all. The lecture series is populated
with a diverse selection of international participants who operate within and on the
periphery of design representing multiple disciplines and perspectives.
