summary This paper discusses the design and fabrication of a novel in-situ fabrication system for building cladding envelope. The construction industry has utilised automation in onsite construction for many decades. This research examines how through the automation process, different construction techniques can be combined to generate a new system that is both performance and design lead. Through abstracting generative effects through the design process, the results are feedback into the fabrication process to construct a more meaningful dialogue between form, material and fabrication procedure. Using electronic prototyping, the researchers tested the system through large-scale prototypes. The paper concludes by discussing the interaction between material and design. We examine how this is evident in the machine workflow. The article addresses the theme of the conference through examining a revision of tool in design that embodied research knowledge for a more sustainable environment.
