About us

The work of the Representation, Fabrication and Computing Research Group encompasses a range of activities, from historical analysis and the science of visual perception, to design-based research and the exploration of innovative new fabrication technologies. In an age in which digital technology has facilitated a wealth of new opportunities for creative practice, it has never been more important to question the role of architectural representation.

The group is divided into three sub-groups: Body, Space and Representation, unified by an interest in drawing as a vehicle for spatial imagination; Design through Fabrication, comprised of academics and practitioners interested in the role of materials and new fabrication technologies in the design and production of architecture; and Spatial Interface, which considers a range of issues relating to representation, media technologies and the science of visual perception.
