BUILDING WITH ROBOTS AT BEYOND BUILDING BARCELONA FAIRE
[Emerging Construction Process]
With designers seeking to push the limits of what is a possible using computational design, parametric modeling techniques, and real-time process feedback, industrial robotic tools have emerged as an ideal development platform to reconsider way of materializing digital complexity.
During the last decades, the accessibility of the technology to new users has increased dramatically, with many manufacturers adopting open standards for connectivity and programming. Designers have taken the flexible nature of industrial robotic technology as more than just an enabler of computationally derived formal complexity; instead they have leveraged it as an opportunity to reconsider the entire design-to-production chain toward mass customization, the use of new material, new process and toward the rise of new design opportunities.
