This event is over, but you can watch the full video below:


Join us for another THRIVE webinar Watch Party on February 9, 2023, at 4:00 pm EST with AISC featuring Stan Carroll’s design and fabrication process using computational methods:


Requisite Autonomy to Revivify the Master Builder
Decades of diverse professional experience as an architect, fabricator, and sculptor have been a fertile training ground for Stan Carroll in revivifying the 21st-century Master Steel Builder through digitization. The three contributing mindsets include 1) Having an unyielding excitement and dedication to the detail of tectonics. 2) Effectively managing the less glamorous aspects of each project; 3) Developing skills as a hands-on builder, digital modeler, and digital fabricator. In this presentation, Mr. Carroll will expose the critical connections to the design of complexity through pragmatic detailing, digital methods, and necessary iterative prototyping in a 21st-century digital workflow.

About Stan Carroll

Living and breathing a digital 3D design-centric career that stretches well beyond the typical domain of an architect and deeply into advanced computational design and digital fabrication, Carroll, a 25-year architectural practitioner, regularly has tested the limits of form and function under the name of Beyond Metal since 1998. His work spans from the design phase to the hands-on fabrication within the domains of furniture design, building design, urban place making, and large-scale public art.

In 2009 Carroll’s design process was transformed by a seemingly trivial decision to learn computer coding. This decision ultimately redefined his firm and career path in a most profound way. Computational methods provide access to vastly more complex 3D forms previously inaccessible with 20th-century tools.

For the past ten years, Carroll has taken advantage of the newfound computational methodologies in a variety of groundbreaking teaching methods and works of public art. Highlights include his role as co-designer on the award-winning, 198 feet tall, SkyDance Pedestrian Bridge in Oklahoma City and his current work as principal designer of the Doris Miller Memorial in Waco, Texas. At the heart of this memorial is a stainless steel wall that advances the geometrics of modern construction systems.
