III International Workshop Digital Design Processes Porto, April 6-13

The III International Workshop Digital Design Processes (DDPIII) at the ESAP - Porto/Portugal - wishes to continue to discuss the implementation of digital tools in architecture and will try to develop the theoretical background into a practical experience about the integration of new digital technologies of drawing (CAD) and manufacturing (CAM) in architecture.

This edition follows the seminar Digital Architecture and the DDPI and DDPII editions, held in previous years. For seven days, a restricted group of students will be oriented in the development of a concise practical work, that will explore the constructive and creative possibilities opened through digital processes.
