FABRICATE 2024 asks how rethinking architectural methods, technology and construction can create a new societal position for the built environment, appointing a particular focus on questions of resource consciousness and bio-based design and fabrication strategies.

departures in the design and making of architecture and to reflect upon how, and for whom, we design.’
