Architecture in the Age of Automation

The use of robots in architecture is already commonplace: Robots automate processes that were previously done manually; complex shapes are created with the help of 3D printing; and autonomous swarm robots construct complex buildings. But how does the use of robots influence the resulting structures; how does it affect the thinking of architects who work with robots?

"Robotic Building" answers these questions and more, drawing on a variety of practical examples. A final chapter explores the idea of architect as robot, the fully-automated home and similar concepts in which the robot merges with its environment and becomes part of our experience.

- Overview of the international state of research into the use of robots in architecture and drawing on the expertise of international research teams from London, Zurich, Cambridge, MA, Los Angeles, etc.
- several practical examples with a focus on architecture rather than algorithms
