Digitizing the Building Site for Restoration Projects: From ALM Technologies to Innovative Material Scenarios
The ongoing synergy between the digitization of the building process and new paradigms related to the production of architectural constructions and building elements, addresses the definition of new scenarios that are worth investigating. The recurring question, indeed, is how the most advanced digital techniques for material production can have a tangible impact on architecture and its morphological languages.
In the field of building design, the chance to turn digital data into matter represents a key point to deal with, in order to demonstrate the possibility to transfer actual benefits from other sectors related to the construction industry. This new technical asset links the digitization of processes with the industrialization of building products.
The present research aims at deepening the opportunity of Additive Layer Manufacturing technologies, alongside the current Building Information Modeling and parametric design methods, to push further the hitherto established decision-making rules and the conventional building site organization, towards a sustainable development.
