This semester MSc 3 students engage in the Design-to-Robotic-Production-Assembly and -Operation (D2RPA&O) of the 100 Years Bauhaus Pavilion (100YBP).
Bauhaus envisioned architecture as Gesamtkunstwerk, incorporating all or many art forms. It influenced the 20th century's Modernist architecture, which was based on new technologies of construction, particularly the use of glass, steel, and reinforced concrete; and upon the rejection of traditional neoclassical and Beaux-Art styles of the 19th century.
The 100 years Bauhaus celebration brings about the opportunity to reflect on the influence of new technologies in the 21st century in particular artificial intelligence, robotics, and 3D printing on architecture. The proposed robotically produced structure employs subtractive and additive 3D printing technologies. Furthermore, it embeds artificial intelligence at the level where sensor-actuators such as light dependent resistors, infrared distance sensors, pressure sensors, etc. informing LED lights, speakers, projectors, etc. in order to allow users to customize operation and use of the pavilion. These will allow adaptation of the built environment to variable environmental conditions and changing user needs.
