In Theory "Kraftwerk"

An expert panel gathered to discuss the virtues and pitfalls of digital fabrication in ”kraftwerk,” a new episode of Texas A&M associate architecture professor Peter Lang’s “In Theory” talk show.  Lang’s distinguished guests for the “kraftwerk” discussion are Dharmech Patel, an award-wining Austin-based furniture designer and fabricator; John Hartmann, co-founder of Freecell, a Brooklyn-based design and fabrication studio that creates site-specific, 3-D installations that transform and question the use and perception of space; and Texas A&M architecture professors Jasmine Benymin, whose current research focuses on architectural manifestations in contemporary art practice and popular culture, and Gabriel Esquivel, who specializes in the implementation of new digital technology within design practice.
