Discover where designers and robots meet. With the rising popularity of digital fabrication tools such as 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC routers and six-axis robots, new design freedom is emerging. This catalyst technology enables designers to rethink traditional craft practices, execute an unlimited variety of non-repetitive tasks, trial material applications for mass-customisation and bespoke design solutions and democratise design.
View a showcase of design research into ‘excitable matter’, produced by students and researchers of the Sydney School of Architecture, Design and Planning.
The research explores craft and material knowledge rethought with cutting edge technology for the 21st century. Exhibited prototypes and models have been fabricated using industrial robot arms and Microsoft Hololens mixed reality headsets, proposing an exciting future for the design and architecture profession.
This event is part of Sydney Design Festival, and presents research outputs produced using technology developed during a collaborative applied research project between BVN and the University of Sydney School of Architecture, Design and Planning.
