Digital fabrication, integrated practice, and cutting edge designs employ material investigations, large scale mock-ups and prototypes of building sections or assemblies. The tactile and esthetic qualities of materials have always been of comparable measure to design, construction and architectural experience; but emergent materials and their associated technologies are rapidly altering the way designers work and the way end-users engage buildings.
