Beyond the Lathe: Investigations In the Baroque and Digital Fabrication – 1


This semester I have the opportunity of taking Professor James Lowder’s course: ” Beyond the Lathe: Investigations in the Baroque and Digital Fabrication”.  The class puts an emphasis on how the construction and fabrication techniques/methods of the Baroque time has helped the development of realizing the Baroque architectonic forms. My case study is on Francesco Borromini’s San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane (1638~1646) in Rome.

The following drawings are the first set of study for analyzing the Baroque church.
