Recent advancements in methods of fabrication and materialization introduce innovative ways of design thinking and experimentation through prototyping. The flexibility and programmability of such methods allow for the implementation of alternative materials in various scales ranging from product design to building processes. Consequently, the efficiency of the design can be achieved by engineering the complexity of material distribution and controlling the degradability level of the used material itself. In this context, “Bioplastic Robotic Materialization” is a collaborative course between the Departement of Design and the Dessau Institute of Architecture inviting students from both fields to an interdisciplinary design to prototyping challenge.
