Robotic Additive Manufacturing Using Eco-friendly Materials – Towards Sustainable Robotic Architecture

Project dates: 01/03/2021 - 30/09/2024

Why it matters 


Project Overview 

This research project focuses on the use of local materials, and agricultural and industrial waste in Robotic Additive Manufacturing (RAM) to generate a framework in which modular building skin contributes to the environmental sustainability of buildings through testing materials and techniques, and designing, building, and examining a proof-of-concept prototype.
