parametric design, architecture and art

This post is the fourth of 4 posts about Digital manufacturing (fabbing) environments that we have been publishing weekly on Fridays. In these posts I have shared my research on fab labs, open innovation and smart cities, mainly in Europe and in Spain.

The fourth post is the result of a research on fab labs and their relationship with smartcities. In the last two articles I have written about two recent nodes of the global fab lab network. Although there are other fablabs in Spain, I decided to give visibility to these two initiatives in León and in Sevilla. Among all fab labs in Spain those two are giving a real opportunity to make personal production and digital manufacturing accessible and comprehensible for a wide range of people. However, the most popular manufacturing laboratory in Spain is Fab Lab Barcelona (2008). It is settled in the IAAC – Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia and it is part of the Fab Lab Network. I would like to share my interest in their research on how the digital production ecosystem could make our cities smarter.

This post is the 3rd of 4 posts about Digital manufacturing (fabbing) environments that we are publishing weekly on Fridays. In these posts I will share my research on fab labs, open innovation and smart cities, mainly in Europe and in Spain.

The third post is a result of a research on fab labs in an academic context in Spain. Fab Lab Sevilla  was promoted in 2009 by the IND_Center  (Centro de Innovación y Diseño_IND ) of the University of Sevilla . It received the official acknowledgement from the Fab Lab Network  in August 2011. I am eager to share my interest for this node of the digital production ecosystem.
