Hot Pop Factory in Toronto

What does our physical space look like in the digital era?

PRESENTED ON DEC 04, 2014
IN TORONTO @ VOL 31

As the digital life is moving faster than our physical life, Biying Mao and her company Hot Pop Factory has started using digital means to disrupt the physical design process. Rather than designing form, they are using computational design to design rules and parameters, similar to computer programming.

3D Printing & Mass Customization

BY HOT POP FACTORY
@ VOL 20 ON JAN 22, 2013

Digital fabrication technologies like 3D printing are becoming mainstream. A new movement is emerging where you'll be able to design every object you own, from your kitchen knives to your cell phone. This is the new industrial revolution, a transition from mass-production to mass-customization.

3D-Printing Biology

BY CORRIE VAN SICE
@ VOL 23 ON SEP 20, 2013

Corrie Van Sice works at the intersection of design, engineering, and biology. She speaks on the under-discussed dilemma of "innovation" run amok. Corrie posits that if more scientists were to operate like artists (in that they could explore their studies without university or corporate control), development in their field might take a new and exciting direction.

The Gothic Vault in the Digital Age

BY JESSICA GARCIA FRITZ
@ VOL 10 ON JUN 06, 2014

Jessica Garcia Fritz believes that architectural history is a cornerstone in architectural education, and teaches her students to utilize the basic structure of vaults used in naves of Gothic Cathedrals. They use a software platform called Rhino for digital simulation and merge the Gothic world into our digital world.

Create and Collaborate

BY KRISTEN SMITH
@ VOL 4 ON MAY 18, 2015

Fabcafe as a new place to collaborate and create set to start in the end of the summer in NYC is presented by Kristen Smith. Tech on site is helping customers with their designs and laser cutting and in the evening the Fabcafe turns into events space. The platfform is to take global connections and use them to thrive the local creative economy.

Shaping Space and Realities

BY LAUREN SLOWIK
@ VOL 4 ON MAY 18, 2015

"What I find funny is the idea that doomsday preppers think they can inoculate themselves from effects of an apocalypse by collecting things we have manufactured in the last 100 years to protect themselves from the future, but in fact what we need more are tools and solutions to overcome the quandary that the demise of our species is at our own hands."

In Shaping Space and Realities from PechaKucha Night Brooklyn Vol. 4, self-proclaimed design evangelist, educator, and promoter of play Lauren Slowik explores the infinite possibilities of shaping space and realities with advancing 3-d printing technology to create new physical connections. Join her as she goes deep into the rabbit hole of how our future can be reimagined with a shift in thinking. 

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Thursday, September 10th, 2015.

DRONOPOD

BY KEITH KASEMAN
@ VOL 23 ON MAY 11, 2017

Conceived of and designed by KBAS, an experimental spatial design firm recently re-launched as Knoxville Bureau of Air and Space, DRONOPOD incorporates advanced digital production and fabrication technologies, large-scale 3d-printing, drones and augmented reality (AR) in order to charge Knoxville with a new type of urban imaginary.Keith Kaseman forecasts a time when drones will be as ubiquitous as smart phones. DRONOPOD provides physical and spatial evidence of what that utility infrastructure might look like and serves as an invitation to imagine what the future city could be.
