3D Printing Architecture Workflows, Applications, and Trends

SpringerBriefs in Architectural Design and Technology Series Editor Thomas Schröpfer, Architecture and Sustainable Design, Singapore University of Technology and Design, Singapore, Singapore

Indexed by SCOPUS Understanding the complex relationship between design and technology is increasingly critical to the field of Architecture. The Springer Briefs in Architectural Design and Technology series provides accessible and comprehensive guides for all aspects of current architectural design relating to advances in technology including material science, material technology, structure and form, environmental strategies, building performance and energy, computer simulation and modeling, digital fabrication, and advanced building processes. The series features leading international experts from academia and practice who provide in-depth knowledge on all aspects of integrating architectural design with technical and environmental building solutions towards the challenges of a better world. Provocative and inspirational, each volume in the Series aims to stimulate theoretical and creative advances and question the outcome of technical innovations as well as the far-reaching social, cultural, and environmental challenges that present themselves to architectural design today. Each brief asks why things are as they are, traces the latest trends and provides penetrating, insightful and in-depth views of current topics of architectural design. Springer Briefs in Architectural Design and Technology provides must-have, cutting-edge content that becomes an essential reference for academics, practitioners, and students of Architecture worldwide.
