What’s happening in India:

Previous days in India, the participants had the opportunity to explore form finding strategies through theoretical and practical scripting sessions through computational design tools. Moreover they investigated material behaviors and its structural implications through a KUKA 6 Axis robot. Also they focused on robotic tools and scale model making, which later on will be built as a series of digitally fabricated architectural elements in 1:1 scale. The 5th day started with an introduction to Robotic fabrication, its implication on exiting architecture and applied to the construction scenario. The Robotic seminar was led by Kunal Chadha, Indian architect and Digital fabrication and Robotics expert from the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IaaC).
