REX | LAB
REX|LAB is a space for realizing ideas. The tools are robotic actuators and the language is CAD programs and code. Going from idea to tangible object is always a form of translation, and interpretation. With robotics and software these processes are very flexible and subject to exploration. As a medium they both claim universality. Six-axis industrial robots are universal manipulators. Code is universal expression of everything calculatable (turing-complete). This paired with their novel nature leaves much to be found, discovered, and realized.

screenshottab.jpgTAB main exhibition Body Building, curated by Sille Pihlak and Siim Tuksam, presents an impressive line-up of internationally renowned architects and researchers, experimenting on the borderline of architecture, using new materials, cutting edge technology (robotic fabrication, multi material 3d printing, real time data analyses) and reaching out to new disciplines (fashion, engineering). The main exhibition is open from 11th September to 11th October 2015 in the Museum of Estonian Architecture, Ahtri 2, Tallinn. Find out more about the participants and take a peak at the gallery here.

FrAgile 2: Porous Cast

 

The installation is part of a series of prototypical (and theoretical) investigations into FrAgility (fragile + agile), which explore the synthesis of agile robotic fabrication methods with fragile materiality. The series includes tests with polyurethane foam, hot melt glue-gun adhesive, plaster, polyactic lacid PLA, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene ABS, polycaprolactone PCL, concrete, Stewalin, gel pellets, clay, sand etc.

FrAgility is a key aspect characterizing all of them - an implication for openness, dynamism, hybridity, agility and fragility. In this case a simple technique of form-carving and casting was combined with gel inlays creating “self-organized” porosity. Porosity adds additional properties to the resulting prototype, for example thermal absorption, lightness or allowing environment for other (natural) organisms - as a synergy between the natural and the artificial.

For Spring/Summer 2016
Iris Van Herpen explores the powerful confluence of nature and architecture. Inspired by the living tree bridges in India, the designer executes a new approach to garment construction, mixing the techniques of cutting, weaving, folding and growing into a process that transcends the boundaries of traditional clothes-making.[...]
