Matthew Trimble, founder of Radlab Inc., a design and fabrication consulting firm which combines architecture, design computing, digital fabrication and product development, shares the research and design work carried out by his team. As he shows videos and explains many of the innovative projects and products developed, he elaborates on the different techniques employed taking advantage of technology and applying empirical evidence as well, and also comments on the fact that experimenting is an essential part of applied research. The variety of their successful fabrications displayed, range from projects for shoe companies to medical devices, all approached within the context of architectural thinking.
