Robots: Automatización en Diseño y Construcción para la Enseñanza de Arquitectura

Chiarella, Mauro ; Böhme, Luis Felipe González ; Barentin, Cristian Calvo ;


Industrial robots controlled by parametric design software and visual programming environments are gaining popularity in the research and use of non-conventional construction processes in architecture. Process automation which can be personalized through variable components promises to become an industry standard with similar cost structures to current pre-fabrication industrial processes. In order to incorporate competencies from non-serial variable architectural modular design, an initial teaching initiative (Advanced Architectural Design Studio – USM) was developed in Latin América. The strategy employed is based on incorporating concepts and instruments of Construction Andamp; Design Automation for CAD/CAM processes with a Six Axis Robotic Arm (KUKA KR125/2).
