Robotic Building: Architecture in the Age of Automation
The use of robots in architecture is already part of everyday life: robots automate processes that were previously done manually, for example, with the help of 3D printing robots, complex shapes are created and autonomously acting swarm robots can work together to construct complex buildings. And the potential of robotics in architecture, building construction and construction technology is far from being exhausted. Crucial questions arise: How does the use of robots actually affect the resulting buildings, how does it influence the thinking and planning of architects who work with robots? Robotic Building: Architecture in the Age of Automation, co-authored by Mollie Claypool, Gilles Retsin, Manuel Jimenez Garcia and Vicente Soler examines these questions using practical examples. A final chapter deals with the idea of ‚Äč‚Äčarchitecture as a robot, the fully automated house and similar concepts in which the robot merges with the environment and becomes part of our experience. Two position papers are contributed by Antoine Picon and Philippe Morel.
