His name is Guy Martin. He is SCI-Arc trained (Southern California Institute of Architecture) and considers himself a Digital Architect. His partner is a robot named Marie with an 80’ reach and together they’ve fabricated complex composite creations for clients as varied as designer Philippe Starck, and the pioneering private space transport company, Space X.
At their facility in Southern California, Guy Martin Design is leveraging digital technology to explore new processes for creating complex forms and compound geometries with the latest composite materials. For Guy, it’s about getting closer to the means of production and the materials, in essence taking back some of the control the craft of architecture had when he was the master mason.
