PhD CRC-P: Investigating how the manufacturing concept DfMA might be applied to the design and production of buildings.
The project examines the recent phenomenon of DfMA as a concept and practice in the discourse around the future of building.
The research investigates:
- DfMA in its original manufacturing context;
- how it has been transposed to the field of building production;
- the challenges resulting from contextual differences in this translation across industries;
- and how we might move towards an approach more suited to the production of buildings.
