Description:

This research is based on exploring the potential of combining small robotic actions and human craft into the large earthen shells techniques.
The gentle robotic projection and spraying action of soft natural material (viscous and fibrous) on fabric and inflatable form work aims to develop new construction techniques that are built on site.
The research will be developed around some feedback loops systems where the thickness of the shell, the density and location of the openings will be controlled according to structural and form finding feedback to the small robots.
The swarm of small robots facilitating laborious and heavy earth construction tasks, more local cultural craft can be developed in the large structures.

Background behind Phriends4Shells

Author: Stephanie Chaltiel

The idea of using digital fabrication and more specifically small robots to include in earth construction principles comes from my initial link to CRATerre back in 1999. I was also running a project in French Guyana in an Ameridian village where local crafts were used in contemporary houses proposals. The idea of finition by the... read more

Smart Geometry 2016 – Mud, Fabrics & Robots for Large Structures

Author: Stephanie Chaltiel

Building large Shells with Robots, Hands, Mud and Fabrics During the 4 days workshop we will work with the participants on exploring domes and large spans recursive geometries allowing the construction of earthen shells. To do so we will craft digitally with the robots some textiles with different fibers density to be used as form-works. We... read more
