title The CorkCrete Arch Project: The digital design and robotic fabrication of a novel building system made out of cork and glass-fibre reinforced concrete
source Living Systems and Micro-Utopias: Towards Continuous Designing, Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2016) / Melbourne 30 March–2 April 2016, pp. 735-744
summary The CorkCrete arch is a 1:1 scale construction aiming at testing the use of robotic fabrication technologies in the production of a novel building system made out of two different materials – cork and concrete (GRC). The combination of these materials is promising since it merges the sustainable and performative properties of first with the structural efficiency of the second one. The result is a materi- al system suited for customized prefabrication and easy on-site instal- lation. The current paper describes the design and fabrication process of the arch, which employed a single parametric design environment to bridge design and fabrication, and an innovative sequence of differ- ent robotic processes. The success of this experience invites the team to continue this research into the future construction of larger scale applications.
