The National Society of Minority Architecture Students (NOMAS) at Mississippi State hosted a discussion on digital fabrication on Friday, April 5 as part of the annual NOMAS Symposium.

Lisa Iwamoto, principal at Iwamoto Scott Architecture and associate professor at the University of California, Berkeley, served as this year’s visiting panelist.

Questions were posed, such as “How do spatial implications occurring in the transition between a flat surface and a three-dimensional form translate to the comfort, spatial or programmatic conditions of space?” and “How could the encouragement of social inclusion lead to a change in fabricating architecture?”

Iwamoto presented a lecture following the panel discussions on “The Culture of Craft,” the final lecture for the 2012-2013 Harrison Lecture Series.
