12.02.2014 The Robotic Touch – How Robots Change Architecture
Park Books.
„The Robotic Touch – How Robots Change Architecture“ introduces a radically new way of thinking about and materialising architecture. It is the first anthology on architectural design with robots and provides a selection of projects that have originated over almost a decade of research at ETH Zurich. Within that scope, the book not only outlines a digital building culture to come, it deliberately proposes that this culture be shaped by architects.
