Having gained substantial momentum within the past decade, advancements in the field of robotics in architecture continue to develop at an astonishing rate. Countless experiments, demonstrations and professional applications of automated assembly applications carried out in academic institutions and professional fields across the globe point to a host of inevitably transformative impacts within design professions and construction industries. It is evident that ever-widening access to robotic equipment provides architects with unique opportunities to extend their reach into fundamentally new modes of design, spatial operation and material production. This introductory course aims to serve as a point of entry into this wide field of potential and development, and is geared to be a hands-on working seminar utilizing the Kuka robotic arm (KR 120 R2500 PRO) and other systems in the Digital Fabrication Laboratory (DFL).
