We could say that the form of a work of architecture or a design object is a set of traces that the tools left on the materials. Although the creative process is more than that, and begins begins earlier in the realm of ideas, we cannot deny that manufacturing has an important place in architecture and design.
In the training of the architect and designer (and perhaps some other disciplines), reflection on the process of manufacture seems to be an important part. Even more so if it is prompted by the imperative to generate a finished and useful object that responds to all the requirements of practicality and beauty that make it part of the real world.


“The course presented here is an effort to introduce the manufacturing dimension in the formative process. Its results can be measured in the quality of the objects produced.”
