Research Associates David Correa and Oliver David Krieg of the Institute for Computational Design (ICD) at the University of Stuttgart will hold a technical workshop on robotic fabrication at CAWP. While many industries have made leaps and bounds in adopting highly flexible and fully automated fabrication workflows using robotics, the construction and design industry are only just starting to open the door to these technologies. Recent developments in robotics combined with more accessible design-to-fabrication tools can now offer architects, designers and fabricators unprecedented access to a new design paradigm. We are pleased to welcome two experts from one of the world’s leading research groups in this field to share their knowledge and experience with students and practicing architects here at UBC. Using a newly-installed state-of-the-art eight-axis industrial robotic work cell in the CAWP pilot manufacturing pilot, the workshop will guide participants through the unique technical and conceptual foundations that underpin robotic milling in wood through the development and construction of a full-scale fabrication project.
The workshop is structured as three full days of core learning sessions, followed by two optional hands-on fabrication/assembly days at no further charge. For more details see http://cawp.ubc.ca/robot-made-large-scale-robotic-timber-fabrication-in-architecture/
