In the past weeks, Robots in Architecture led 4 robot workshops in Australia and Asia. As part of the CAAD Futures conference, a two-day robot workshop took place at Tongji University, which will soon be getting two brand-new KUKA Quantec robots. Shortly thereafter – but 7000km away – another two day workshop took place at Bond University in Gold Coast, Australia with a KUKA Agilus robot provided by Headland. The next week was spent at RMIT in Melbourne, where we – together with 10 students – developed a new fabrication process combining robotic hotwirecutting and assembly on a really impressive robot setup, consisting of a KUKA KR150 arm on a 4m long linear rail and vacuum gripper (see video above). Tomorrow, Friday 26th, marks the last day of a one-week robot workshop at the University of Sydney – more photos/videos to follow soon!
We want to thank our hosts, especially Chengyu Sun in Shanghai, Chris and Jonathan at Bond, Jane, Andrew, Roland, and Rafael at RMIT, and Dagmar, Marjo, and Gabe at USydney for inviting us – we had a great time!
