Austin


February 19 - February 23, 2014


TEX-FAB extends its reach to Austin, this year adding the University of Texas School of Architecture as a member organization. In doing so, the UT SOA is supporting the largest and most complete event to date with Michel Rojkind as our Keynote lecture with 6 speakers and 4 moderators. Moderators will delve into techniques to highlight the differences between working methods, while within the workshops, session leaders will further develop those topics as functional methods for the production of design solutions. As an intensely focused symposium which expands the workshop offerings from Grasshopper, Revit to Processing and newer productive methods, the scope and range is truly substantial. In addition the UT SOA will concurrently exhibit the SKIN competition fabricated winner and entries. SKIN is generously supported by Rigidized Metals as a material sponsor and the A. Zahner Co. in both material sponsorship and project fabrication of 3xLP designed by Christopher Romano and Nick Bruscia.

This year TEX-FAB has elicited more of the world's leading experts in Digital Fabrication to discuss and teach in a four day symposium at the University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture. Our expansion and reach is far beyond our previous efforts and shows a greater breadth of investigation and outreach.
This year, we are bringing together a wider range of workshop leaders to teach twenty one workshops at the UT School of Architecture. The workshops will range from introductory sessions to advanced sessions that address issues of diagramming, scripting, paneling, tensile structures and casting with a broad array of tools from Revit, Processing to the parametric plug-in for Rhinoceros, Grasshopper.
