summary This paper will examine the recent transformations to architectural drawing that are occurring in the presence :abstract of information based drawing procedures and their potential for new fabrication methods. The mathematical organization of information has resulted in a more systemic, intricate, and variable approach toward making things— characteristics that have historically been associated with manual forms of craft. The shift from a geometric to an information based paradigm is allowing a wide range of industries to more easily converge. Consequently, a much broader range of interdisciplinary fabrication processes are now available to architects and designers. This confluence of numerical based machinery in other fields is providing new possibilities for architects to visualize data using a broader range of materials and techniques.
