This paper presents the results of an interactive installation in which visitors can provide any variety of objects to a collaborative robotic manipulator (UR5) which recognizes part geometry and attempts to construct a dry-stacked wall from the material offerings. A visual and auditory interface provides suggestions and error messages to participants to facilitate an understanding of the acceptable material morphologies which can be used within the constraints of the system.
The energy performance of a base case building in each of four climates and cultures is presented. The climates are: Phoenix (hotdry), Minneapolis (cold-dry), Boston (cold-humid), and New Orleans ( hot- humid). Keeping the host climate, site, building size and function constant: but varying materials, shape and design concepts, each base case is iterated through a series of computer assisted re-designs to transform each base case building into an architecture representative of its regional climate and culture.
Traditional technologies and concepts produce traditional regional architecture. New technologies and concepts produce forms expressive of an emerging high-tech, high-touch, low energy society.
The paper presents computer generated work by the author and his students. It also presents an interim evaluation of the successes and difficulties of conducting a 'paper free' design studio.
