FABRICATE : negotiating design & making by Fabio Gramazio( )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following the inaugural FABRICATE conference 2011 in London, the most important forum for international discussion on digital fabrication in architecture has resumed by Fabio Gramazio and Matthias Kohler at ETH Zurich. In contrast to the projects presented in 2011 at the Bartlett School of Architecture, which were balanced between practice and research, the questions about design and materialisation in architecture, construction, engineering, manufacturing, material and software design currently seem to be driven more by research institutions and young start-up entrepreneurs than by architectural practice. While digital fabrication technologies are becoming common practice in architecture for prototyping as well as in the realisation of buildings, contemporary research does not just investigate their further development, but presents ways to integrate them already in an early design phase to definitelyovercome the still prevalent separation of design and making
Made by robots : challenging architecture at a larger scale by Fabio Gramazio( )

12 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the next decade or so, the widespread adoption of robotics is set to transform the construction industry: building techniques will become increasingly automated both on- and off-site, dispensing with manual labour and enabling greater cost and operational efficiencies. What unique opportunities, however, does robotics afford beyond operational effectiveness explicitly for the practice of architecture? What is the potential for the serial production of non-standard elements as well as for varied construction processes? In order to scale up and advance the application of robotics, for both prefabrication and on-site construction, there needs to be an understanding of the different capabilities, and these should be considered right from the start of the design and planning process. This issue of AD showcases the findings of the Architecture and Digital Fabrication research module at the ETH Zurich Future Cities Laboratory in Singapore, directed by Fabio Gramazio and Matthias Kohler, which explores the possibilities of robotic construction processes for architecture and their large-scale application to the design and construction of high-rise buildings. Together with other contributors, such as Philippe Morel, Neri Oxman, Francois Roche and Antoine Picon, they also look at the far-reaching transformations starting to occur within automated fabrication: in terms of liberation of labour, entrepreneurship, the changing shape of building sites, in-situ fabrication and, most significantly, design
The robotic touch : how robots change architecture by Fabio Gramazio( Book )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The synthesis of data and material, which failed to develop in the early digital age, is being realised in today's architecture. This becomes apparent in various medial, spatial and structural manifestations; where data and material can no longer be interpreted as parallel features but rather as being innate expressions of architecture, that have become essential to construction in a new digital age. Closely related to this development is the increasing use of robots in the building process; enabling the fundamental integration of data and material, programming and construction, where processes are developed based on fixed rules, analysed, and then translated to practical construction. Using robots in architecture has not to date been comprehensively researched. This book examines the the theory and practice robot-based building processes and the specific implications of using robots, within architectural design, looking to the future of this innovative and cutting-edge technology
Konrad Wachsmann and the Grapevine Structure by Marianne Burkhalter( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

German modernist architect Konrad Wachsmann (1901-1980) had a career-spanning interest in construction processes, in particular the prefabrication of building components and their assembly within modular systems. In this respect, Wachsmann was a pioneer whose ideas and work paved the way for today's industrialized construction. Marianne Burkhalter and Christian Sumi synthesize years of careful research into a compelling look at this highly creative architect. At the core of the book is Wachsmann's dynamic Grapevine Structure, a universal construction element developed with students during his tenure at the Chicago Institute of Design--part of what is today the Illinois Institute of Technology. The book also investigates Wachsmann's Packaged House System, his relocatable hangars for the US Air Force, and, in particular, the Local Orientation Manipulator (LOM), developed with John Bollinger and Xavier Mendoza at the University of California, Los Angeles. Fabio Gramazio, Matthias Kohler, and Hannes Mayer (Gramazio Kohler Research, ETH Zurich) revisit the LOM from a contemporary perspective where robotic fabrication processes have become increasingly common. The book also features an essay by Andreas Burkhalter on Wachsmann's legendary knotted joints in the context of possible similar structures in the human brain, and a conversation by Marko Pogacnik with architects Hermann Czech and Friedrich Kurrent on Wachsmann's lectures at the Salzburg Summer Academy.

Autonomous assembly : designing for a new era of collective construction( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We are now on the brink of a new era in construction - that of autonomous assembly. For some time, the widespread adoption of robotic and digital fabrication technologies has made it possible for architects and academic researchers to design non-standard, highly customised structures. These technologies have largely been limited by scalability, focusing mainly on top-down, bespoke fabrication projects, such as experimental pavilions and structures. Autonomous assembly and bottom-up construction techniques hold the promise of greater scalability, adaptability and potentially evolved design possibilities. By capitalising on the advances made in swarm robotics, the collective construction of the animal/insect kingdom, and advances in physical computational, programmable materials or self-assembly, architects and designers are now able to build from the bottom up. This issue presents future scenarios of autonomous assembly by highlighting the viability of decentralised, collective assembly systems, demonstrating the potential to deliver reconfigurable and adaptive solutions."--Back cover
