Symposium / Fabricating Futures

What can architects and designers come up if design and fabrication becomes robotic?

The installation that will be built during the masterclass Fabricating Futures will be the starting point for reflections, presentations and discussion on the impact of robots on the design and fabrication processes. The invited speakers will introduce you to the possibilities of computational design and robotic fabrication. Today and in the future.

What is the impact of these technologies on the role of the designer? How do these fabrication methods relate to traditional means of fabrication? Which evolutions are there within the field of computational design and robotic fabrication? And what will their impact be architecture and design?
