Lisa Iwamoto presents on “The Culture of Craft”

Lisa Iwamoto, principal with Craig Scott at Iwamoto Scott Architecture, discussed her arena of craft – digital fabrication – at the final Harrison Lecture for the year.

Iwamoto said her teaching and research at the University of California, Berkely, led to a book, Digital Fabrications: Architectural and Material Techniques, that celebrates the design ingenuity made possible by digital fabrication techniques and explores the methods architects use to calibrate digital designs with physical forms.

Throughout the presentation, Iwamoto focused on material type, folding and buildings. She walked the audience through several projects in which she played with using ordinary materials in extraordinary ways and also showcased some of her students’ work.
