ESR15 – SMALL SCALE ROBOTIC MANUFACTURING FOR THE LARGE SCALE BUILDINGS

Digital fabrication presumes prefabrication and off-site production. This has vast implications on the environment and building practice as a whole, as transportation increases energy consumption and carbon footprint and logistics necessitate a building logic based on elements effecting problems of tolerances and loosing structural and thermal advantages of monolithic structures while increasing costs and limiting the size of elements.
