Burning Down the House - Episode 133 - Digital Fabrication with Guy Martin

Guy Martin designs digitally and fabricates digitally. On this week's episode of Burning Down the House, host Curtis B. Wayne is joined in the studio by colleagues Ryan Doyle and Mark Canfield, and they are speaking with Guy about digital fabrication. Hear about the parametric elements that Guy must work with to create and realize his designs. How does Guy attempt to bridge the analog and digital worlds? Hear about how analog fabrication almost always involves a feedback loop that informs the craftsmen about the making process. Find out how some of Guy's designs and structures have been implemented in the technology, building, and entertainment industries. Are there things that Guy's fabrication robot cannot produce? What does digital fabrication offer for the future of building? Find out on this week's episode of Burning Down the House! This episode has been sponsored by Fairway Market. "It (digital fabrication) lends itself to intricate, figurative, and detailed work- work that has a certain amount of repeatability." [42:10] "I'm really interested in looking at the robot as part of the whole process, not just making one part (of the structure)." [50:00] -- Guy Martin on Burning Down the House
