Robotic Fabrication for Non-Standard Architecture
The University of Sydney, str.ucture GmbH
Research (2014 - present) explores efficient application of automated technology and material design for production of non-standard architectural elements in UHPC and functionally graded concrete. In this pursuit of investigating new materials for the 21st century, existing tectonics, building processes, energy and resources consumption, material waste and quality are questioned. The significance of this research is in redefining the 21st century construction process, with relevant consideration between existing skills and tools, innovative materials and technologies and the environmentally sustainable outcome.
