Fabclay is the project that demonstrates the new vision of making architectural design and constructions, In terms of changing the logic of built from human as a constructor to machine, regarding to new aspects of technology possibilities. It has started from researches on traditional way of building with simple and accessible materials and continued by expanding the connections between archi- tecture and new technology. Through digital design process we are able to make complex shapes by simple rules that are emerging from mechanic performance and material’s possibility. Material’s properties and its communication with machines will create the perfor- mance in which complex forms can be emerged, therefore exploring the behavior of material and its’ potentials give rise to develop prototypes in order to achieve architectural applications in vari- ation of species in terms of scale, form and function.
