Greg Lynn Speaks at TED

Greg Lynn, creator of the Blobwall and head of Greg Lynn FORM, lectures on how the development of calculus based tools is affecting the architectural field. He presents a quick history of design from the perspective of whole, fraction and now a more fluid calculus based system of describing shape and even shows off a few of his firms boundary breaking projects. The calculus based software would of course be a cul-de-sac unless computer based fabrication technologies like CNC routers, plastic mold injectors, and 3D printers were available, so Greg takes a few minutes to introduce us to the future of fabrication. This is a stimulating lecture. Enjoy!
