AbstractIn the third term of the MAS programme, students focus on developing their own research thesis, working individually or in groups of two. In line with the programme, students select a research brief in the field of robotic fabrication processes and 3D printing technologies.
ObjectiveStudents familiarise themselves with academic research in the field of architecture and digital fabrication. Closely supervised by researchers of Gramazio Kohler Research and Digital Building Technologies, students work from a research brief to physical output demonstrating their achievements. Through a series of experiments, students gradually refine their arguments, familiarising themselves with the rigour of academic research, while at the same time contributing to ongoing research. The individual thesis work is condensed in a written thesis and presented in front of a jury of international experts.
