This course is an extension of the Boston Architectural College’s 2010 Edco Grant that was awarded to Margaret Hwang, Peter Schmitt, and Matt Trimble for design research in robotic arm fabrication for architectural applications.  This is an 8-wk course that will take place at Radlab, in the Seaport District of Boston, and will focus on the exploration of alternative uses in robotic arm machining.  The course is framed around a single project that will be presented at the end of the eight week session.  Students will engage with the robotic arm as a design machine, used as another tool within a collection of other digital and physical tools.  Their objective is to create a custom fixture (1) that will attach to the robot, a material assembly (2) upon/with which the robot will operate, and the operation itself (3).

We would like to thank Diego Matho, Director of Design Computing at the Boston Architectural College, and the Edco Grant committee for their support in making this class possible.  We would also like to thank our sponsors at Industrial Robotix, Mastercam, and Robotmaster for their support and enthusiasm.
