SUTD: ASD Distinguished Lecture - Advanced Digital Fabrication:Learning from the Sagrada Família

Mark Burry
Advanced Digital Fabrication: Learning from the Sagrada Família
Monday, 30th May 2016, 6.00 pm, Lecture Theatre 4 (Building 2, Level 4, Room 2.404)

 

As Senior Architect of the Sagrada Família Basilica Foundation since 1979, Mark Burry has been a pioneer of employing technologies such as parametric design and digital fabrication in architectural practice, and of combining them with historical research. This challenging project -the world’s longest ongoing construction site- has been at the forefront of design and technology for over a century, starting with original, visionary and structurally daring design by Antoni Gaudí (1852 – 1926). Part of a Unesco World Heritage Site, the project also is of immense cultural importance, focusing local identities and global tourism alike. 

Mark Burry also is the Professor of Urban Futures at the University of Melbourne at the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning. In this position, he is consolidating research in urban visualisation, urban analytics, and urban policy. He is assisting with the University of Melbourne’s collective goal of tackling three ‘Grand Challenges’ - understanding our place and purpose, fostering health and wellbeing, and supporting sustainability and resilience - through an urban futures perspective, cross-Faculty linkages, and developing broader research and industry connections.
