CBA (MIT) activities. Rapid-prototyping tools

Related CBA activities across a wide range of length scales are investigating the foundations of fabrication in locally encoding global structures. Macroscopically, a "shape grammar" for wood frame construction was developed to represent the design of a building in coded joints:which can be assembled from press-fit panels produced with two-dimensional rapid-prototyping tools. This approach promises to reduce the cost of construction in time, labor, and materials, and even more importantly to enable rapid customization of low-cost construction that is responsive to local needs [Sass, 2005; Sass and Botha, 2006].
