The session will focus on the work of several pioneering digital architects in their attempts to materialize their work in practice, and to reflect on the ease or difficulty of the transition from virtual to actual in conceptual, technical, material, legal, financial terms. After a decade of working through the latent potentials of CAD-CAM systems, which seem to require a quite thorough rethinking of extant fabrication protocols and frequently require innovative material logics, what lubricity and what resistance has been encountered? Have we yet seen digital latency actualized materially, or are architects still constrained by the relative inertia of pedagogy, praxis and the building industry to develop a new technological aptitude?
