FrAgile 3 – Coralloid Cocoons

The installation is part of a series of prototypical and theoretical investigations into FrAgility, which explore the synthesis of agile robotic fabrication methods with fragile materiality. In this case, 3 industrial robots have 3D-printed their own structural, ornamental, porous and coral-like sheltering cocoons in concrete, one of architecture’s archetypical materials. In a second stage, which can be observed live at the Ars Electronica 2016, the robots spin a much finer, filigree and elastic layer … more
