Robot House, Hardback Book

Description

The next generation of architectural design is moving outside the box.

Robotic arms are beginning to replace and advance now common digital fabrication technologies.

Six-axis robots are showing the way to non-linear workflows, interactive interfaces, tools, and material technologies that can radically alter the established process of how we design and build space, offering a new paradigm for architecture.

This book has three central sections: `Techniques', which sets out the fields and the thinking that underlie the new uses for robotics; 'Projects', offering detailed presentations that explore through prototypes and working models how these principles can be applied and augmented; and 'Platforms', which presents the working tools used for this new genre of improvisational robotics through specially drawn technical illustrations.
