CDR – [trans]LAB engages emerging digital tools with respect to Architecture and Design. A conversation between computer controlled tools and design assumptions which are based on these tools comprises the umbrella for this lab. Experiment, invention and physical material are directed towards the development of architecturally relevant contributions. The focus is to interrogate digital platforms within the context of innovative building envelopes that are transformable and demonstrate real-time morphological changes into architecture. Clark and Kalantar are offering the CDR – [trans]LAB in the School of Architecture + Design at Virginia Tech through the Center for Design Research.
