Thinking Robotic

Thinking Robotic challenges the role of industrial robotic arms which can used in-situ for architectural research and fabrication.

It speculates on the future relationship between architecture and advances in digital technology, and how different robotic research environments could be used for educational institutions like the Royal College of Art.

New open robotic construction sites can now work simultaneously with robotic fabrication research studios, forming a holistic research environment.

Robotic assisted incremental sheet forming is explored here as in-situ fabrication research. The technique is best for rapid metal prototyping, and the stiffness produced is explored as an architectural structural skin.
