YouFab Global Creative Awards – награда, которая ежегодно вручается с 2012 за лучшие проекты в области искусства, архитектуры, дизайна, созданные и реализованные при помощи современных цифровых инструментов. К примеру, одним из победителей YouFab прошлых было кинематическое платье, состоящее из тысяч уникальных компонентов, напечатанных на 3d принтере.
The theme of this year’s YouFab 2017 is “ROCK IT!” We are calling for entrants from all over the world to show us how you nail the art of fabrication.
2017 marks the 6th year of the YouFab Global Creative Awards, which recognizes excellence in global digital fabrication. Last year, we redefined FAB as “Creativity that transcends and combines the digital and physical realms.” Over the years, these awards have evolved into a global platform that recognizes and promotes extraordinary trials, initiatives and creative works that bring together digital and physical elements.
As for this year, we want to truly see you “Rock it!”
There are endless possibilities to what we can create in this world in which creativity blurs the lines between digital and physical, and there are many approaches and perspectives we are yet to imagine.
Having said this, it is also true that the degree of perfection and sophistication of products are developing quickly as the industrial world is aggressively entering the field of digital fabrication.
But, we must not stop here. The best is yet to come! We want to challenge the idea of sensible, defying sound judgement and “hack” common sense. We are truly looking forward to seeing entries that align with this spirit and are looking to support such works. Even if the output is in its drafting stages we will still evaluate the attempt and future potentials of the work.
YouFab, through its award framework, serves as a platform to unearth and promote new ideas and works that can shape our future.
