    The digital nature of post-industrial societies has profound implications for architectural design, documentation and construction. Digital tools and technologies bridge the representational divide between conception and realization, empowering architects to regain control of the design, fabrication and assemblage processes. This paper will discuss ideas and concepts to facilitate the fabrication of non-standard, context-specific, geometrically complex architecture and components. Two case studies exploring digital fabrication and metal casting will be described alongside implications for the fields of architectural design and construction.
