Additive Manufacturing

Associate professor Nina Björnstad gave a presentation at Konstfack about the recently published book, Additive Manufacturing (2017) that gives a historical and current perspective of how this technology is integrated in the educational program at Oslo school of Architecture & Design (AHO). Nina focused on chapter 5 that she wrote together with research director Andrew Morrison about how AHO's and her own teaching supports students to work back and forth between haptic experience of working with clay models and digitals modelling. She refers to the form taxonomy and aesthetic abstractions developed at Konstfack and presented in Cheryl Aker Koler PhD thesis Form & Formlessness (2007).
