The next generation of architectural design is moving outside the box. Robotic arms are beginning to replace and advance now common digital fabrication technologies. Six-axis robots are showing the way to non-linear workflows, interactive interfaces, tools, and material technologies that can radically alter the established process of how we design and build space, offering a new paradigm for architecture. The book has three central sections: ‘Principles’, which sets out the fields and the thinking that underlie the new uses for robotics; ‘Projects’, offering detailed presentations that explore through prototypes and working models how these principles can be applied and augmented; and ‘Platforms’, which presents the working tools used for robotic architecture through specially drawn technical illustrations. These sections are bookended by an introduction, which frames the current developments in the history of architectural innovation, and a reference section with glossary and diagrams.
