Depth Modulations, ETH Zurich, 2013
Elective course (4CP)
This semester we explored the robotic assembly of acoustically performative surfaces with the students. Starting with developing strategies for robotically aggregating a generic, mass produced but highly articulated basic element, the students iterated designs through a digital production workflow utilizing industrial robotic arms. Their projects which were developed through the production of scaled prototypes, enabled deeper evaluation and comparison of the different design implications and allowed the systematised control and manipulation of acoustic and aesthetic properties.
