Robots in Architecture is on the road again. In Berlin, there was a 2-day robot masterclass that introduced participants to the KUKA|prc plugin for Grasshopper. From what started out with automatic toolpath generation for robotic writing quickly moved on to multi-axis spraypainting on the host university’s white walls.
Using an Arduino board, the KUKA robot interfaced with the spraygun, allowing designs that consist of multiple strokes. Truly amazing when art and technology meet.
