Komal Sharma published on Design Observer

Published on: August 1st, 2017

The editors of Design Observer have selected Komal Sharma’s contribution to the MA DS Journal Plot(s) Vol IV for publication. To read more about Komal’s inquiry into the relation of design to craft, see: http://designobserver.com/feature/whats-old-is-new-again/39630

Her essay explores an experimental workshop at a design school in India, where she focused on the question, “What does traditional masonry have to do with computational design and architecture?” The Digital Corbelled Wall Project seeks to open communication lines between designers, craftsmen, and computer algorithms that could potentially enhance design education bringing together diverse skills and backgrounds.

We are proud to congratulate Komal on her achievement and look forward to reading more from our Design Studies aluma.
