Eva received a Master Degree in Architecture at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, where she studied under Prof. Zaha Hadid. Eva met her colleague Rhina Portillo at Studio Hadid, where the idea of SYNArchitecture evolved. Eva has been involved in the design industry for almost a decade, nationally and internationally. As an architectural designer focused on interdisciplinary interaction and multimedia communication based on architecture, arts and computer-aided design, with a great passion for innovation and digital fabrication, she started attending Fab Academy at the Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia in Barcelona. After receiving her degree, she gained professional experience in diverse architectural offices. Eva is also a member of DesignMorphine.
TALK: Manufacturing in the Digital Age
Currently, we experience digital transformation phase in both the things we make and the way we make them. This is the new Industry 4.0, which is often related to digital manufacturing. Using new technologies like IoT, analytics, AI, robotics, 3D printing we open up new niches and the way we work on a whole new level. We believe that the future of technology will be influenced by end-users who will design, build, and hack their own devices. Our aim is to inspire, shape, support, and study these communities. To this end, we explore the intersection of computation, physical materials, manufacturing methods, and design. We want to spread out a framework of cross-functional resources, which allows us to operate digital innovation in education, research, and business alike, at every stage of product and service development. With SYNArchitecture, we want to assist with the adaptation to those changes in the digital age and embrace it to create a better tomorrow. The presentation explores the concept of “Manufacturing in the digital age” within the design field. It suggests a broad interpretation of the relationship between “digital tools within manufacturing processes” and design by analysing the use of recent “technological inventions”.
