Ronald Rael is the CEO and co-founder of the start-up company, Emerging Objects— a pioneering, creatively driven, MAKE-tank at the forefront of 3D printing architecture using innovative materials, and a partner of the creative practice, Rael San Fratello, with Virginia San Fratello. In 2014 Rael San Fratello was named an Emerging Voice by The Architectural League of New York—one of the most coveted awards in North American architecture. Rael is an Associate Professor at the University of California, Berkeley with a joint appointment in the departments of Architecture and Art Practice where he is the Director of the PrintFARM — a printing facility for architecture, research and materials. http://www.rael-sanfratello.com
The work of Michael Eden sits at the intersection of art, design and craft, exploring contemporary themes through the redesign of historical, culturally familiar objects utilising digital manufacturing and materials.
An MPhil research project at the Royal College of Art allowed me to explore how his interest in digital technology could be developed and combined with the craft skills acquired during previous experience as a designer and maker of ceramics. Having attracted wide media and public attention, the work has been exhibited internationally and acquired by a number of international Art Galleries and collectors.
Jonathan Keeps is an independent practising artist potter and a leading exponent of studio based ceramic 3D printing. He will talk about his self build ceramic 3D printer and his relationship with the Italian group WASP who have the dream to 3D print relief housing in clay. http://www.keep-art.co.uk/journal_1.html
Dr Guan Lee has a BSc. in Architecture from McGill University, Montreal, Canada (1997), an Architectural Association (AA) Diploma (1999) and an MSc. Landscape Urbanism (2003), also from the AA, and completed his PhD by Design (2013) at the Bartlett, UCL. He is founder and director of Grymsdyke Farm, a research facility and architecture workshop located in Lacey Green, Buckinghamshire. Grymsdyke Farm’s motivating concept is to establish and explore the value of living/working arrangements that involve intimate engagement with materials and processes of making. Lee’s practice engages in a wide range of design fabrication, digital and analogue. Its aim is to expose, articulate and demonstrate the essential connections between processes of design, making and place.
