Needlab aims to explore the interaction between nature and technology, between traditional craftsmanship and digital fabrication.
This kind of workshops (series_Matters) will focus on unveiling new ways of creating a dialog between local materials, social practices and environmental forces. Following the motto “act local, think global”, it will also be held in different countries.
Students will be testing new methods of construction using the local brick, in an environmentally responsive way. To create and construct the pavilion, we are collaborating with Fab Lab, a fabrication community that has three labs in Kuwait with advanced fabricating facilities. For the material, we are collaborating with a local provider National Industries.
