RESEARCH


Leanne Zilka is a practicing architect and also an academic at RMIT University engaged in research around the making of architecture. This is done from the perspective of fabrication of complex forms and working on solutions to light weight fabric based architecture that is able to be fabricated using advanced fabrication technologies. These technologies include the Shima Seki 3dknitting machine typically used for mass producing knitted garments but have the capacity to create larger scaled elements for architectural applications.
