Publisher's description: As the connection between data and building materials grows ever closer, with digital information not just informing plans but actually being used to create the material that will construct a building--robots are necessarily playing a large role in architecture. Yet the use of robots in architecture has not been treated comprehensively until now. The Robotic Touch features thirty research projects on robots in architecture originating at ETH Zurich, documenting various methods and concepts relating to the use of robots in architecture. In particular, Robotic Touch offers the first full analysis of the material and constructive aspects of robot-based building projects--and draws out the implications for architectural design on the growing use of robots. The volume is rounded out by six topical essays on broader aspects of the subject, along with technical data-sheets and a helpful glossary.
