Transformations in landscape architectural practices are closely linked to technological change, and tools of making. Recent developments in computational design methods and robotic fabrication have expanded the possibility space beyond the automation of traditional fabrication techniques in unforeseen directions. This class will explore the potential for robotic tools to make novel forms of materialisation in outdoor settings. Students will develop skills and a fundamental understanding of robotic control and engage in large-scale 3d printing. This subject will be highly speculative and experimental. It has a strong emphasis on making and is highly structured around project-based experimentation.
