Spatial Extrusions, ETH Zurich, 2016
Elective Course (4ECTS)
During this semester, the students will explore the architectural potentials of robotic extrusion of spatial mesh structures. Typically, structures are assembled from discrete elements, such as, for example, concrete beams or timber members. With the bespoke robotic fabrication process at hand, however, we will foster the potential of the continuous extrusion of filaments to design and fabricate spatially differentiated structures. Through computational design, simulation and robotic fabrication we will investigate the development of different spatial extrusion typologies in close relation to the material properties of the polymer filament. These serve as the base for the design of a prototypical lamp shade. As such, the students will learn how to generate and articulate geometrically complex designs through robotic programming, and their translation into physical prototypes.
