Abstract

How does the use of robots affect the architecture? The use of robots in architecture is already part of everyday life: robots automate processes that used to be done manually, for example, with the help of 3D printing robots, complex shapes are created and autonomous swarm robots can work together to construct complex buildings. And the potential of robotics in architecture, building construction and construction technology is far from being exhausted. Crucial questions arise: How does the use of robots actually affect the resulting buildings, how does it influence the thinking and planning of architects who work with robots? Robotic Building: Architecture in the the of Automation examines these questions using many practical examples. A final chapter deals with the idea of ​​architecture as a robot, the fully automated house and similar concepts in which the robot merges with the environment and becomes part of our experience.
