80110 Adaptive Robotic Fabrication for Building Design



This course investigates the use of adaptive robotic fabrication, a design and making approach that seeks to increase the number and nature of feedback loops?between?materials?and structure.

The combination of computational design and?computer-numerically-controlled (CNC) fabrication processes (including robotics) offers architects the possibility to regain a direct connection to materials and their manipulation.??This course focusses on?the?most profound impact of this shift:?that architects?gain?the ability?to create adaptive design systems that?respond?to material and fabrication systems. As a student of this course,students design and produce 1:1 prototypes?using?robotic?rod-bending?and adaptive digital design models.
