visual identity, print and digital, for a two-day symposium + accompanying exhibition, 2022
The two-day symposium 'Robots that Build. The Extensions of Man'. explores robotic manufacturing in the context of craft, craft-anchored techniques and multi-material systems. Under the paradigm of process efficiency and optimization, manufacturing robots are primarily used to reduce manual labor and minimize the margin of error and waste. However, the use of robots can also be viewed as a means to implement, adapt and evolve manual manufacturing techniques.
The event will bring together experts from leading research institutes and architecture schools in the fields of architecture, robotic fabrication, computational design, and innovative material systems. Topics include robotic implementation of craftsmanship techniques, the relationship between tools, materials, and designers, and the control of robotic processes.
Presentations and talks will explore the past, present, and future of robots and robotic fabrication in architecture from the perspectives of multimateriality, process design, and hybridization of practices. The relationship between low-tech and high-tech in construction and the intelligence of systems - analog vs. digital - are key aspects we interrogate.
