Laura Lovell-Anderson will be exhibiting work, Vaisseau, at LUMAS Gallery


Robotic Printing -- On a global scale, cross-disciplinary research to leverage the full potential of digital fabrication and applications of robotics are at the forefront of design. Design researchers and creative scholars are increasingly investigating integrated design and robotic control methods for applications in on-site digital fabrication and bespoke digital prefabrication, to reimagine the possibilities of interiors, architecture, and design.

Lumas Gallery, 159 Yorkville Avenue

Come see OCAD U Industrial Design Instructor, Laura Lovell-Anderson along with Jonathan Anderson on how Robotic fabrication strategically operates by deploying minimal material for maximal geometric definition and, as a medium, allows for the timely creation of precise and intricately crafted complex interior and exterior environments, as well as objects and surfaces. Building on the principles of computational craft, robotic fabrication seeks to build on recent advancements by examining the ways in which robotic arms have come to be seen as transcending their traditional role as performers of the monotonous tasks of mass manufacturing pipelines and instead be viewed as part of the toolset available for the production of crafted and unique work. These factors combined challenge analogue and low-tech design conventions to reconsider the entire design-to-production process, where the realities of innovative processes and solutions only seem to expand.

The Lumas Gallery window display showcases a series of robotically 3d printed vessels. The 20+ vessels were all printed using a Kuka robotic arm with a custom engineered and built end effector.

Open life drawing session offered by the OCAD U Alumni Association
The Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers is inviting all students who identify as creative women* entrepreneurs in design to join us for a dinner as part of our Good w/ Food dinner series, which brings together OCAD students, alumni, and broader professional communities over food.
Learn the basics of softcover bookbinding to give your zines and publications a handmade touch! 
The future presents new challenges and opportunities for design. Those who manage design must equip themselves to confront rapid change on all fronts – economic, environmental, and social. Research and practice must increasingly collaborate to keep pace with the needs of today and the future. 
The OCAD U Creative Professionals-In-Residence program (CPIR) is a mentorship initiative created to support the career success of current OCAD U students and recent alumni. Join us for an introductory talk with CPIR Liz Irkiriko.  
Join our top graduate students for a TED Talk Social
Join Tom Barker for a curatorial tour of CodeX: playable & disruptive futurist eArt.
