Robotic Fabrications 2016-17

Initiated in 2016, Robotic Fabrications AA Visiting School operated for two years as a research branch of the Design + Make programme. Traditional techniques and tools are applied alongside digital fabrication tools and 3D scanning to develop innovative processes for the production of architecture.

‘Chainsaw Choreographies’ (2016) explored the precision, petrol-fuelled territory where code meets chainsaw, where ‘Bandsaw Manouevres’ (2017) investigated the flexible limits of a tensed blade. In 2018 I presented our work titled ‘Altered Behaviour: The Performative Nature of Manufacture’ at the RobArch 2018 conference.
