1:1 Making the Digital House

6 - 20 March 2007

A new method of building houses that harnesses digital design technology and low volume production methods was the focus of a new exhibition at The Architecture Foundation's Yard gallery. 1:1 Making the Digital House, gave the public a unique opportunity to see a prototype of the Digital House, as a cross-section of an actual house is constructed in full public view.

As a major advance in the construction of house building, 1:1 Making the Digital House demonstrated to house builders and the house buying public a bespoke, high quality, well designed and more sustainable alternative to traditional housing. The Digital House was the accumulation of two and a half years of research and development by the architects Bell Travers Willson, and made possible by funding from the London Development Agency, with the aim of engaging with traditional house builders to develop ways to enhance new housing construction using digital technology.
