title A New Machinecraft. Architectural Robots
source Emerging Experience in Past, Present and Future of Digital Architecture, Proceedings of the 20th International Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2015) / Daegu 20-22 May 2015, pp. 745-754
summary The topic of this paper concentrates on robots and their new role in the architectural process from the early stage of conceptualization to the final stage of its materialization. By presenting a theoretical framework and an applied case study, this paper tries to initiate the discussion of redefining the status of the robotic machine in architecture. Besides being a regular tool among other digital fabrication tools, the robot and the ability of the architect to technically manipulate them, bears the potential of further reconnecting and intertwining the process behind design and fabrication. Operational and structural processes are being modified and points of focus shifted. Digital design connected by customized robotic machines to digital fabrication has the capability to result in a new type of architecture.
