ROBOTIC LANDSCAPES II
The thesis is part of the interdisciplinary research project ‘Construction Robotics’ supported by the NCCR Digital Fabrication. It is a collaboration between the Chair of Landscape Architecture of Prof. Christophe Girot, The Chair of Architecture and Digital Fabrication of Gramazio and Kohler and the Robotic System Lab of Prof. Marco Hutter at the ETH Zurich. | The Topology of Robotic Landscape Fabrication
A New Topology for Valle Riviera
The HS 2017 Robotic Landscapes Design Studio is a collaboration between the Chair of Christophe Girot and the Gramazio Kohler Research. It will explore the robotic manipulation of local topography to create a new linear landscape park and sound barrier along the A2 in the lower Valle Riviera, Ticino. Innovative topological modelling methods will be used to study the shaping of formless soil material with robotic fabrication processes.
The goal of the studio is to define a new landscape topology with regard to acoustic performance through robotic fabrication. Students are asked to develop tangible and precise landscape structures at various stages, phases, and scales over time.
