Volume to Surface Tectonics


The Design to Robotic Production studio and workshops explore and develop novel possibilities of implementation and integration of Robotics in Architectural Design and Building Industry. A series of purposeful, performative and informed Design to Production Processes are designed and tested to eventually series of one-to-one building prototype. D2RP 2015 Studio explores three architectural subjects: Hybridity, Variation, Componentiality. Variation explores possibilities to purposefully differentiate and scale matter depositions/accumulations from Macro to Micro scales. This implies that in this project we are aiming at designing novel processes and solutions for introducing performative and scalable topological variation / porosity / density that will be producible with a specific / customized robotic production process.
