Embedding robotics into the fabric of architecture fosters a more interactive and potentially more intimate relationship between the built environment and us, and represents a new frontier for design, computing, and psychology. Part-seminar, part-lab, this course considers the design, technical, social, ecological, and ethical challenges and opportunities of architectural robotics.
When Offered Fall.
Permission Note Enrollment priority given to DEA students.
Distribution Category (HA-HE, D-HE, KCM-HE, LAD-HE, SBA-HE)
- To understand the design, technical, social, ecological, and ethical challenges and opportunities of architectural robotics, and demonstrate this understanding in written form and presentations.
- To conceptualize and evaluate design alternatives responsive to the challenges and opportunities of an ecosystem that is biological, artificial, and increasingly digital, using a variety of design strategies.
- To demonstrate an ability to iterate, in design prototypes, an architectural robotic artifact (from furniture to the metropolis in scale).
- To demonstrate the ability to communicate the motivations for, iterative development of, and expected use of the Architectural Robotic artifact that was prototyped, as well as assessing its shortcomings (through the vehicle of a video).
