summary Modern materialization of architecture depends on the use of regularized, highly processed remotely - sourced materials produced through a centralized, industrialized process. This involves energy use, increasing the environmental impact and cost of the final structure. This study investigates leveraging digital technology to capture near - site material geometry, providing design tools and processing the material on - site. Optimization techniques are applied to minimize the use and processing of materials while meeting design goals and engineering constraints. A simulation and prototype using digitally selected and cut trees as main bearing members in a structure is used to confirm the proposed process.
