summary This paper introduces the notion of transient materialization to investigate a novel approach of robotic fabrication. Transient materialization explores a new logic of materialization that takes the advantage of differentiated material states to generate form at a particular moment through computation and fabrication technologies. Specifically, this design research explains a unique design and fabrication process, opening up a new method of materializing architectural form that emerges from the interweaving of data, the material capacity (plastic deformation), timing, and machine capacity. Hence, to examine this research direction, this paper conducts an experimental project, Robotic Metal Curving, through hands-on material experiments, as well as the development of algorithms, robot motion, and prototyping machines. This experiment utilizes an induction heating technique in cooperation with a six-axis industrial robotic arm and fabrication equipment used to shape each metal rod into a three-dimensional curve at a transient moment. In addition, the project focuses not only on developing a robotic metal curving system but also apply this technique in large scale by fabricating a wire-frame structure.
