The Robotic Touch
19 April 2018Oskar von Miller Forum, Oskar-von-Miller-Ring 25, 80333 München
I a lecture at Oskar von Miller Forum in Munich the architect Matthias Kohler will talk about „ The Robotic Touch - How Robots Change Architecture“.
Architecture is changing. The rise of computational design, the advances in sensory and robotic control, the ability to integrate the knowledge of various disciplines into digital processes all help to advance architecture and construction. In this context, the industrial robotic arm is one of the universal tools of the digital era in architecture, a tool that makes the new design paradigms tangible. Having introduced the robotic arm to the field of architecture in 2005, Gramazio Kohler Research has been pioneering the field – going beyond a purely technological approach and working towards a digital building culture.
Matthias Kohler is an architect with multi-disciplinary interests ranging from computational design and robotic fabrication to material innovation. In 2000, he founded the architecture practice Gramazio & Kohler in conjunction with his partner Fabio Gramazio, where numerous award-wining designs have been realised.
