Design to Robotic Production for Informed Materialization Processes

Sina Mostafavi, Ana Anton, Serban Bodea


Design to Robotic Production (D2RP) establishes links between digital design and production in order to achieve informed materialization at architectural scale. D2RP research is being discussed under the computation, automation and materialization themes, by reference to customizable digital design means, robotic fabrication setups and informed materialization strategies implemented by the Robotic Building group at Hyperbody, TU Delft.
