Most architects who build do not make buildings; they make information that
makes buildings. Making buildings requires acquiring knowledge not only of the
world of information exchange, but also of the world of making things. It is an
expertise that goes beyond the architectural drawing and an expertise that many
designers cannot claim to fully possess or practice.
Design through Making is not only directed at architects, but engineers,
educators, fabricators, machine operators, and anyone with an interest in the
manifestation of ideas. It seeks to challenge outmoded notions that building
production is preceded by design, and making is merely the cooking of the raw,
or the end game where no further design ideas are explored. Here, a hybrid mode
is recognised where the investigation of ideas is fully engaged with the
tactile, physical nature of architecture and building processes. It is an issue
that celebrates the re-emergence of making, not merely as an immense resource
for ideas, experimentation and customisation, but as a critical resource that
will redefine architectural practices.
