Datascape FEST's kickoff roundtable in Paris

VOLUMES Coworking in Paris is launching the 2018 Datascape FEST with a kickoff roundtable night with Francois Brument, Hugh Dutton and Nicolas Maigret.

Datascape FEST is a series of lectures, experiences and workshops focusing on interdisciplinary collaborations on digital fabrications; organized by Volumes Coworking Datascape and Design By Data, which is held in Paris from January to April 2018. This year's Datascape FEST covers topics from BIM, 3D printing, motion design and more.
