Melding of Digital Tools and Craft in Complex Fabrication

In the architecture and construction industry, the older generation of workers are currently the most well-rounded employees, skilled with their hands and learning new technological programs but their experience is in jeopardy of being replaced by digital tools that attempt to capture this collective memory.

There is an industry-wide gap between the craftsmen and the digital products that designers and the younger generation use. Our next Design x Technology - Lunch and Learn lecture, presented by Shawn Keller, President of CW Keller & Associates will dive into this widening chasm and open up the necessary conversation around how to stitch the two sides together.

  • Discover what kind of education is needed to prepare the next leaders in architectural manufacturing.
  • Hear how digital tools can both bridge AND isolate.
  • Learn why the way a designer wields their digital tools shapes the success of each project.
  • Find the best way to foster great leaders and build an awesome team of all ages and skills.

Join Shawn, on-campus or virtually to gain insight on the demographics of our industry, aging craftsmen, and their relationship with younger designers.

Melding of Digital Tools and Craft in Complex Fabrication is part of Lawrence Technological University's CoAD Lunch + Learn lecture series. LTU CoAD's Lunch + Learn lecture series is free and open to the public. RSVP to receive the livestream link prior to the lecture.
