In relation to those materials, he will take an in-depth look at surface finishing and panel shaping (2d and 3d). Wurster will then share the latest technological advancements in metal cladding, including digitally automated panel fabrication.

Workshop Objectives:

  1. Increase knowledge about all commonly used metals in facade design.
  2. Explain digitally automated panel fabrication.
  3. Explain the different ways metal can be formed.
  4. Provide insights into the latest technological innovations.
