title Artisans and Digital Craft in Latin America: The contribution of architects to their creativity and production
source SIGraDi 2018 [Proceedings of the 22nd Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics - ISSN: 2318-6968] Brazil, São Carlos 7 - 9 November 2018, pp. 1179-1186
summary This research explores the work of a generation of Latin-American architects who use programming and fabrication with traditional artisans. In the 21st century, this scenario was empowered from experiences produced in Fab Labs and Makerspaces in the context of localisms. We look at how digital technologies improve their processes, focusing on creation, adapting to the new economy, strengthening the regional identity in the scene of globalized Design, when political discourse drives innovation and technology to its benefit. The main objective is to understand the coexistence of designers and traditional artisans, providing experiences that could strengthen the identity of design in the region.
