Welcome to the Convergence: How Processes for Making, Building, and Producing Are Coming Together

Time was, manufacturing and architecture didn’t have much in common—they were different industries using different workflows. And entertainment?  That was a galaxy far, far away.

But times have changed. With new digital technologies, these industries are converging, learning from each other, and adopting shared approaches for making, building, and producing.
