Remote Material Deposition, 2014 @ GKR, ETH Zurich
Remote Material Deposition features an industrial robot that aggregates material over distance and therefore exceeds its predefined workspace. The process was realised as an architectural installation within a cooperation between Gramazio Kohler Research and the Sitterwerk St.Gallen. The installation takes a first step in characterizing a novel approach in digital fabrication, taking architecture beyond the creation of static forms to the design of dynamic material aggregation processes.
