The panel will include two amazing architects with a great background in digital fabrication and manufacturing. With the 4th industrial revolution, the world started to integrate technology with the use of natural materials as a way of raising the awareness of sustaining more resources, time, cost, and money. "Hard as wood, Soft as fabric" is the title of the panel where it discusses treating with contrast materials, techniques, and processes. The know-how of the process becomes more important than just getting a complex form. The panel will present some works of Hesham Shawqy and Rebal Jber related to digital fabrication and the process of doing not only the results. This will pave the road for others to start merging different disciplines and think about integrating them in their field innovatively.
