title Soft Robotics Applied to Architecture
source ACADIA 2105: Computational Ecologies: Design in the Anthropocene [Proceedings of the 35th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-0-692-53726-8] Cincinnati 19-25 October, 2015), pp. 232-242
summary This paper presents an application of a current research in soft robotics to architectural systems that present new modes of activation. The immediate architectural applications of soft actuated elements are to any surface wall, ceiling, floor as well as in the production of smaller autonomous living units. This augmentation of architecture that is not only actuated robotics but are also soft, add a layer of intelligence to earlier experiments in inflatable architecture. Using new polymer compounds cast with a series of internal chambers, different ranges of motion may be produced by the differential inflation of chambers with air. The resulting movement may be designed to produce a series of degrees of freedom, allowing the passage of human occupants, light, and views.
