Clay Robotics is an ongoing project developed by Jiashuang Sun, Kelvin Ho, and Sihan Wang at the The Bartlett, University College London. The project team is led by studio tutors Philippe Morel, Thibault Schwartz and Guan Lee as part of MArch Graduate Architecture Design, Research Cluster 5.
The proposed fabrication system hybridizes existing concrete casting techniques with additive manufacturing processes through the use of six-axis industrial robotic arms. The objective of this research is to develop a viable large-scale casting technique that is potentially more sustainable, and efficient than traditional construction.
