ETH Zurich brings together robotics and architecture to create pavilions

Posted by Analog Watch Co. on

Students and professors from the Swiss University designed this intricate pavilion made up of wooden shingles. While the creation of this structure is unique and stunning, the construction of the pavilion is noteworthy in it's own right as the building was assembled using robots. Not only is building things with robots probably a lot of fun, it can actually cut down on waste as well. "Through automatisation techniques and innovative feedback processes, the fabrication system was able to minimise material waste by reacting to different material sizes even during the construction process," said Philipp Eversmann, the head of the Digital Fabrication course. Using interconnected braced cuboids, this structure builds upon itself, forming into window seats, stairs, and curving into a beautifully formed and fully realized piece of art. It's so wonderfully made, we're jealous of the robots that got to build it!
