Robotic Building: Customized design to robotic production for additive manufacturing

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeChapterScientificpeer-review


The Robotic Building (RB) project is based on the assumption that the factory of the future in building construction employs robotized processes that allow energy and material efficient building. Started in 2014 at Hyperbody, TU Delft, with a team consisting of assistant professor Henriette Bier PhD candidate Sina Mostafavi, researchers Ana Anton and Serban Bodea and student assistant Marco Gali, the project aims to establish the Design to Robotic Production (D2RP) and operation framework allowing successful implementation of robotic production at building scale. The D2RP framework exploits expert and user involvement challenging the production/consumption gap by connecting parametric models with robotized production tools in order to achieve efficient production of custom-made parts for personalized use.
