With the strategic project DIGITAL BUILDING FABRICATION HUB, Graz University of Technology has set itself the goal of creating a forward-looking and interdisciplinary centre of excellence for research into new digital manufacturing processes in the building industry.
digital fabrication processes in the building industry. The centre positions TU Graz and the region at the forefront of integrating digital planning and manufacturing methods for a competitive and innovative building culture.
Since 2007, the Faculty of Architecture at TU Graz has been researching and developing in a cross-faculty network in the field of digital fabrication. The results indicate an above-average potential through the integration of digital processes for innovative strength and productivity in the construction industry. The flexibilisation of the construction industry and prefabrication and the use of digitally controlled machines on the construction site are promising and interdisciplinary fields of research.
