Robots in Architecture

Mobile Robotics | Seminar - BSc./MSc.


Ready to take on new architectural challenges and break into exciting, cutting-edge fields?

With our new robotic infrastructure at the chair of Digital Methods in Architecture, we want to explore the benefits of integrating collaborative robotic manipulators with an autonomous mobile robotic platform. The aim is to investigate potential applications and navigation methods for the platform in an architectural context.

During the seminar, we will work with and control both, the mobile platform and an attached mobile robotic arm (UR5e) to it. Students will gain first experience and skills in robotic fabrication and use their design capabilities for creative engagement with robotics in order to develop methods for design that harness production or live adaption as a creative opportunity.

Robotically manufactured architectural prototypes (part or whole) will be developed by students and presented at the end of the course.

The class will be held in English.
