The University of Toronto’s Responsive Architecture at Daniels (RAD) will showcase robots that build architecture May 27th thru 30th. The RAD Workshop: Archibots will investigate the potential for robots to build (or destroy) environments.
Beginning by developing a taxonomy of existing robots, this collaborative design workshop will result in interdisciplinary teams experimenting with robots that can build and design environments. Each robot’s capabilities and limitations will determine the structures they can build and vice versa. This workshop will equally challenge approaches in both robotics and architecture. Every team will be part architect, engineer and robot.
