CONTENT & APPROACH
The 1st workshop introduces students from TUD and DIA to Design-to-Robotic-Production (D2RP). D2RP links design to materialisation by integrating all (from functional and formal to structural) requirements in the design of building components, while D2RO integrates robotic devices into building components in order to facilitate spatial and climatic reconfiguration. Together they establish the framework for robotic production and operation at building scale. The main consideration is that in architecture and building construction the factory of the future will employ building materials and components that can be robotically processed and assembled. Thus D2RP&O processes incorporate material properties in design, control all aspects of the processes numerically, and utilise parametric design principles that can be linked to the robotic production.
