The robotic experimentation lab at the Department of Experimental Architecture
Founded Oct 2012 by Prof. DI Marjan Colletti, MArch, Dott., PhD, ARB
REX|LAB is the robotic experimentation lab at the Department of Experimental Architecture at Universität Innsbruck, founded and directed by Prof. Dr. Marjan Colletti in October 2012 as a space for formal and material 1:1 scale experimentation and fabrication strategies. It originally consisted of three six-axis ABB IRB 2600-10/1.65 industrial robots with a payload capacity of 20 kg. It was one of the very first multi-move setups – it allows synchronised motion with all 18 combined axes – to be integrated in an architecture school and to be flexible and transportable. It is now integrated in the larger INN|LAB Research Centre (Innsbruck Innovation Robotic Construction and Fabrication Lab) of the Faculty of Architecture, initiated by Prof. Colletti in 2017.
