KurzbeschreibungThe second term of the MAS programme is split into two consecutive design and fabrication projects. Students work collaboratively on all aspects from design to the digital / robotic fabrication of their 1-1 scale structure. Students acquire experience in project management, learn to organise their work packages and develop integrated digital fabrication processes.
LernzielStudents tackle the challenge of integrating an innovative constructive system and robotic fabrication workflow into a digital design project with respect to a given timeline.
InhaltDuring the second ten weeks of term 2, the assignment is to design and fabricate a complex spatial timber structure. Students work collaboratively on all aspects from computational design to structural analysis and simulation, customised robotic tooling and fabrication. They acquire experience in 1-1 scale robotic construction using the unique facility of the Institute of Technology in Architecture equipped with four ABB IRB 4600 industrial robotic arms attached to a gantry system.
