February 27- March 3, 2013


The University of Texas at Arlington hosted TEX-FAB 4 over four days on February 28th to March 3rd 2013. This year’s conference featured a day-long symposium of speakers from the academic and professional sector and introduced for the first time a four day workshop that ran throughout the entire conference. We were fortunate to have Lisa Iwamoto join us as our keynote lecture and share the compelling work being done by her firm IwamotoScott Architects. The conference presentations expanded to include a wide range of work such as The Beck Group, Arup, Future Cities Lab, Aranda\Lasch, MODE Collective and CASE. The winner of this years APPLIED competition also made a presentation on their work entitled “Cast Thicket” which anchored the exhibition in the UT Arlington Gallery. The workshop instruction featured some new faces with Jason Johnson teaching Robotic Prototypes and the HKS Line Studio teaching Beyond Pavilion Architecture. Familiar faces included David Fano but this time with Nate Miller who taught Workflow Rigging, Travis McCarra who taught Parametric Fundamentals, Chris Lasch returned to teach Design Scripting and Ronnie and Gil Akos who expanded their Crafting Material Effects to a four day workshop. The TEX-FAB 4 event saw AEC professionals, academics, and students join in a lively discussion around issues of computational fabrication and continued the efforts to bridge regional dialogue with a global network.
