Rob|Arch 2012 Video Contributions

In addition to the papers that were presented at Rob|Arch 2012 and published in the Rob|Arch book, the Association for Robots in Architecture sent out a call for video contributions to artists, researchers, students and companies world-wide. These impressive videos show the extremely wide range of robotic projects in the creative industry – from cutting-edge robotic milling, to new endeffectors, and even completely customized robots themselves.

At Rob|Arch 2012, the video contributions were shown at the conference venue to an audience of 250 international experts. It is now our pleasure to present the Rob|Arch 2012 video contributions to a worldwide audience.

KUKA|prc updated for 2013

We have updated KUKA|prc with a range of new features, including an entirely new interface for the Rhino 5 version, the brand new KUKA KR6 Agilus robot, and a new milling spindle, amongst others. The Rhino 4 version of KUKA|prc works with both Rhino 4 and 5, while the Rhino 5 version works exclusively with Rhino 5. Please note that there is a new licensing strategy for the Rhino 5 version, please contact us in case you run into any problems. The download contains KUKA|prc for Rhino 4 and 5 in separate directories.

Please download it from the KUKA|prc page.

Dear Rob|Arch2012 participants, authors, co-chairs and sponsors,

We hope that you had relaxing holidays and a good start into the New Year!
Rob|Arch 2012 was a great success and we thank you for your positive feedback and the good wishes for the future events. From what we have heard, Rob|Arch not only provided great inspiration, but also lead to quite a few new collaborations and projects within the community.
We have uploaded nearly 15mins of workshop videos at Vimeo and 360 photos both on Facebook and the conference homepage.
The video submissions and presentations will follow soon – we are still post-processing the huge data volume.
We would like to thank nevv.org for their support, our photographers Eugen, Raimund and Marko for a good documentation, and all people involved in the conference workshops for their hard work.

Finally, we want to introduce the new ROBARCH list, inspired by lists such as ECAADE and CAADRIA, which are of great use to the community. The new ROBARCH list will link together architects, artists, designers, and engineers involved in robotic fabrication and promote new events, posts interesting job openings etc. The first official ROBARCH eMail will go out soon, please let us know if you have anything to announce!

Have fun with the first part of the online RobArch2012 documentation and thank you all for having been part of RobArch2012!

With kind regards from Vienna!
Sigrid & Johannes


Robots in Architecture is on the road again with workshops in:
January 17-19 Istanbul, Turkey
January 21-24 Trier, Germany
April 25-28 Master I Architettura I Digitale I Iuav, Venice, Italy
July 1-5 CAADFUTURES, Tongji University, Shanghai China
Summer 2013: Robots in Architecture goes Down Under in Australia

Robots in Architecture has just joined Facebook! As Rob|Arch is coming increasingly closer, we’ll try to frequently post up-to-date information about the preparations. All essential information will of course also be posted on robarch2012.org

Go to www.facebook.com/robotsinarchitecture – you do not have to be a member of Facebook to view this page, as we will be posting publicly.

New Robot Arrivals for Rob|Arch 2012

We’re glad to announce that the final batch of robots has arrived in Vienna, three Staeubli TX90 robots, ranging from normal size to the XL variant, which will be used for the SciArc workshop at Rob|Arch. The ABB IRB 120 for Thibault Schwartz’ workshop already arrived a while ago. The Association’s KR16-2 aren’t on workshop duty, but will exhibited at the conference as well. While the workshops in Vienna are nearly fully booked out, there are still some places left e.g. for Graz, which is connected to Vienna by a direct 2.5h train connection. For more details on Rob|Arch, please go to www.robarch2012.org

KUKA|prc Update

KUKA|prc has been updated! This release contains a new robot model, various bugfixes (especially regarding endeffector orientation) and improvements in regards to speed and stability.

Please download it from the KUKA|prc page.

Robots @ ACADIA 2012

We had an exciting time at this year’s ACADIA! Jason Kelly Johnson and his team did a great job in organizing a memorable event. A good appetizer for Rob|Arch2012 were the presentations of robotic projects by Rob|Arch co-chairs ETH Zürich, University of Stuttgart, University of Michigan, SciArc, and Harvard.

SciArc’s Brandon Kruysman and Jonathan Proto hosted a spraypainting workshop with one small Stäubli robot – this time they did not spraypaint Germany´s Next Topmodel but a deepdrawn plastic torso in ACADIA´s main colors black and pink.

After this taste of Rob|Arch we presented our new conference during the conference dinner and it became very clear- the ACADIA community wants to see more robots!

So we are happy to invite you to join the full scale robotic workshop of hot-wire cutting hosted by Michigan (Wes McGee) and TU Delft (Jelle Ferringa), or a full scale robotic bridge construction hosted by TU Graz,  a mere 2-hour trainride away from the main conference site in Vienna! Quite a few workshops are already full, so please register as soon as possible via registration.robarch2012.org

We are also proud to announce that thanks to Jason Kelly Johnson´s initiative, the Association for Robots in Architecture has now become a sister organization of ACADIA! We have big footprints to fill!

Last but not least, we want to congratulate David Rutten for his extremely well-deserved ACADIA 2012 Award!

Rob|Arch 2012: Call for Video Presentations

At the upcoming Rob|Arch 2012 conference, 8 universities are organizing robot workshops and 18 papers will be presented, alongside cutting edge developments of industry partners. As even a five-day event cannot cover the whole scope of robotic fabrication in architecture, art, and design, the Association for Robots in Architecture invites research institutions and companies, as well as individual artists, architects, designers, engineers, researchers, and students to submit video presentations of their “robotic” work to the Rob|Arch 2012 conference. The video clips should showcase new developments and innovative projects that are relevant to the conference topic of robotic fabrication in architecture, art, and design.
All video presentations that get approved by a jury of experts will be shown at the conference/exhibition to the Rob|Arch 2012 attendees, among them CEOs of major robot companies as well as industry partners and internationally recognized researchers, architects, and artists. Furthermore, they will be published on the Rob|Arch conference homepage, www.robarch2012.org, to a wide internet audience.
To submit a clip, please go to http://videosubmission.robarch2012.org and click on Make Submission. The Submission page contains detailed instructions regarding the required video format.

Submission Deadline: 20.11.2012

Rob|Arch 2012 is the first international conference on robotic fabrication in architecture, art, and design. From December 14th to 16th, eight parallel robot-workshops led by internationally recognised specialists from institutions such as the University of Stuttgart, TU Delft, ETH Zurich, TU Graz, SciArc, University of Michigan, Harvard, and TU Vienna will take place at four locations distributed throughout Europe, immersing participants to cutting-edge robotic research.
The results of the workshops as well as research projects, chosen by the scientific committee, will be presented and discussed at the conference from December 17th to 18th. Keynote lecturers Fabio Gramazio and Matthias Kohler from ETH Zurich, Achim Menges from the University of Stuttgart, and artists Clemens Neugebauer and Martin Kölldorfer will show different approaches how robots can be used in the creative industry.

The production of the conference workshop documentary and the live broadcasting at the RobArch-Pavilion will be performed by NEVV.ORG digital media.

Please register for the conference at http://registration.robarch2012.org . The early registration is extended! If you have any questions, contact the conference chair at chair@robarch2012.org
