Delivering Digital Architecture in Australia

ARC Linkage Grant 2006 – 2008

Chief Investigators: Mark Burry, Mike Xie,  Industry Partner:  Arup, Research Associates: Yamin Tengono,  Steve Downing, APAI PhD scholarship: Dominik Holzer

Project summary

Design, documentation, and off site prefabrication of numerous recent major international architectural projects, were achieved with evolving integrated 3D digital methods. While Australian architects, engineers, manufacturers, fabricators, and constructors have participated in a few such projects using these technologies, generally, local understanding and uptake of the opportunities is still very low.   Growth in this area means growth in an existing export rather than increasing reliance on importing these services and products.   More fundamentally, it means a huge cultural dividend to Australia from greater affordable freedom of architectural expression.
