During this highly experimental workshop we explored the potential of incremental forming of plastic in an architectural context. Over a week-long workshop we went at the very limits of both material and machine, finetuning the fabrication strategies in the process. All final exhibits were designed by the participants themselves within Grasshopper and KUKA|prc. The relative high speed of the process allowed us to iterate very quickly, using parametric programming to quickly react on and improve on the result of the previous experiment.
