Description:
ICAT Playdates are Friday morning gatherings to explore creativity and innovation at the nexus of science, engineering, arts, and design. We have doughnuts and coffee with networking for the first 20 minutes, followed by a presentation and question/answer period. Meet faculty, students, and the community. See icat.vt.edu for more info about specific sessions.

Digital architecture is a method to bring together technology in design to develop new forms and constructions. Digital architecture also allows faculty and students a freedom of design and experimentation that could only be acquired through years of expertise and training. In the Center for Low-Carbon Structures, our students have been experimenting with a Maslow CNC to create two-dimensional patterns, and three dimensional objects from plywood plates. The playdate is an opportunity to see the inner-workings of the projects developed and to experience some of the challenges and opportunity that is available in this area of design.
