Robotics found their way into architecture and creative industry. Robotic arms were developed as universal machines similar to the human hand, equipped with an array of tools. A change of tools transforms a milling robot within minutes into a 3D printer, a CNC drilling machine or a completely new yet unknown machine.
The research project “Robotic Woodcraft“ a cooperation between the University of Applied Arts, Vienna and the Association for Robots in Architecture and the design studio Lucy.D. research innovative practices in the woodworking industries. For this project, e.g., a monitor blind Monitorblende mounted on a robot is created. Such an object could not be produced at a reasonable cost with standard industry tools. The robotic installation interacts with the visitors and shows a curated selection of videos. The projects shown illustrate the way in which the use of robots can create novel approaches in architecture and design.
