The AA School of Architecture’ has developed a thesis project, entitled Growing Systems, which explores adaptable building systems using methods of robotic fabrication and generative special printing within the context of housing.
Centered on a new method of structural 3D vertical extrusion, the project combines the precision of prefabricated elements with the adaptability of on-site fabrication, in response to the flux and dynamism of cities. The method becomes a system of elasticity that can accommodate site parameters, as well as future adjustments.
“The robotic arm will be embedded with intelligence, being able to scan the environment and the printed geometry and provide feedback. It will also be equipped with a generative algorithm that will adjust the design real-time fully erasing the line between design and fabrication.”
