MakerBot Store In New York City Brings Architecture And 3D Printing Together

MakerBot is kicking-off the annual month-long festival of architecture at the MakerBot Store in New York City with a special 3D printing professional lecture with noted designer W. Scott Allen of Perkins+Will. Scott Allen will discuss how he and other architects are embracing the use of MakerBot Desktop 3D Printers in their work. This lecture is geared for architects and those interested in utilizing 3D printing on a professional basis. The lecture will take place 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, September 25, 2013, at the MakerBot Store, located at 298 Mulberry Street (between Bleeker and Houston Streets). This informative lecture will provide attendees with an inside look at how architects are utilizing 3D printing to help visualize building projects and showcase their designs. Admission is free, but space is limited and reservations are required in advance by visiting: makerbot.com/retail-store/events.

Scott Allen is an associate architect and designer with the global architecture firm, Perkins+Will, that has a staff of 1,500 in 24 locations worldwide. The firm serves clients across a broad range of project types, grounding its work in deep research. Perkins+Will ranks among the world’s top design firms and is the recipient of hundreds of awards. It was ranked number three in both Architectural Record's 2011 Top 250 Architects, the 2012 Interior Design Top 100 Giants lists, and ranked by Fast Company as one of the top 5 most innovative companies in architecture. Allen’s portfolio encompasses more than 25 million square feet of work throughout a broad range of building types, and he is currently involved in a number of projects across North America, Europe, the Middle East, Australia, and Asia. Allen’s work emerges from ideal, yet pragmatically rational methods, guided by an open dialogue, economic evolution, and curiosity. He believes in testing unique and creative solutions that respond to the needs of users and are meaningful to their context, while simultaneously challenging the way we reshape our world. Allen’s work has been featured in Fortune, Fast Company, various art galleries, and exhibitions.

“We’ve been using 3D printing for a while, however having a MakerBot Desktop 3D Printer in our studio has helped us quickly and economically leap from concept to prototype by enabling overnight printing and allowing us to rapidly test more ideas and concepts with a far quicker turn around than ever before,” stated Allen. “Some of our teams have been using the MakerBot to explore everything from overall master planning, single building forms, to more specific exterior curtain wall components; while other offices have used it to make small scale figures, key chains, and furniture. In the short time we’ve had the pleasure to use the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer in our studios, it’s proven to be an invaluable tool at all scales to help communicate and explore ideas for our clients.”
