Since september 2019 the newly founded museum of future in Berlin, FUTURIUM, is presenting our current research results from the field of robotic 3D print in clay, porcelain, concrete and stoneware. In differentiated test series, the space and shape-forming potential of robot-assisted, additive manufacturing is presented to a differentiated, international audience.
The future of robotic additive manufacturing of architectural components, whether on site or in a factory, is currently rising questions about inherent material properties, scale and the new kind of material control architects will gain from this new paradigm. Apart from obvious issues like statics, construction techniques and geometric limitations other perspectives arise around the degrees of freedom gained from the robots and the codes by which we operate them.
