Malleable Voxels, Madrid, 2017
Robotics Atelier 2017 at the Norman Foster Foundation
The workshop Malleable Voxels explores the potential of robotically aggregating earthen materials by shooting clay projectiles from varying directions, suggesting an entirely new interpretation of existing 3D printing techniques. Due to the projectiles’ malleable nature, they deform through impact and create an interlocking bond with the existing structure. This workshop focuses on designing and fabricating formations of small-scale clay projectiles in model scale, which are informed by their orientation and compression.

The workshop is held at the Norman Foster Foundation in Madrid as part of the Robotics Atelier 2017. Ten students from universities and institutions from all over the globe are invited to develop creative ideas and concepts about the synthesis of computational design, material processes and robotic fabrication. With the urgent call for sustainability, we ask how untreated natural materials and advanced technology can be combined to arrive at new methods in construction that shape the future of architecture.
