After the international workshop of 2016 the resonance and 2017 the weaving structure, this summer, talented makers from all over the worlds will come to National Yunlin University of Science and Technology to create innovative and astounding advanced technology and design. This time we will use the theme of “symbiosis.

By through the design thinking paradigm, digital fabrication technology and computational design methodology, we hope to explore the phenomena in nature from the perspectives of biology, space geometry and social interaction.

We will used the digital fabrication and converge the different material to develop into a unique theme: “symbiotic effect.”
