An Innovative Workflow for Interventions on Cultural Heritage
Keywords:additive layer manufacturing, digital fabrication, second digital turn, digital architecture, cultural heritage
The current advancement of this research within the construction sector is the missing link for bridging the gap between the digitisation of building processes and the fabrication of architectural components. Renewed market needs and contemporary design languages require increasingly in-depth digital proficiency for the management of representation and production. The primary challenge of turning digital data into matter in the building design field must be overcome in order to demonstrate a possible transfer of benefits for new constructions, or interventions on existing buildings. The scientific community unanimously states the importance of deepening the most updated digital fabrication systems. With the aim of elaborating a methodological approach that prevents the technique from prevailing over the cultural assets a project requires, the present study proposes an innovative workflow for restoration projects on culturally relevant architecture in a state of degradation.
