The pavilion is the culmination of a four month-long workshop series ‘Making Together’ that investigated the […]
RC4 – MOBO
RC4 – MOBO B-Pro Design Computation Lab – Research Cluster 4 MOBO is a housing system with its own construction tools investigating issues surrounding housing we are facing today, such as unaffordable rents, and metropolitan development where land is scarce and expensive. MOBO envisions a cooperative-owned housing platform that reimagines the meaning of homeownership through […]
RC4 – PizzaBots
RC4 – PIZZABOTS B-Pro Design Computation Lab – Research Cluster 4 PizzaBots aims to investigate autonomous processes in design and construction, with a focus on the housing sector. By designing an identical geometric syntax between robotic process (active pieces) and building components (passive pieces), the project is able to transform an end-effector into an active […]
Home-Office
AUAR – Home-Office London & Bristol, UK-based design and technology consultancy Automated Architecture (AUAR,pronounced ‘our’) builds their temporary Home-Office using robotically fabricated, reconfigurable timber building blocks. While looking for new office space, AUAR designed and built a temporary installation at The Building Centre in London, which acts as home, office and co-working space. The installation […]

RC4 – Int
RC4 – INT B-Pro Design Computation Lab – Research Cluster 4 INT aims to introduce complexity in prefabrication. The team looks into robotic assembly of robotic bricks while also addressing the relation between users and robots. Through implementing feedback in the robotic assembly process, human interaction is incorporated. The design process becomes truly indeterminate and […]
RC4 – MickeyMatter
RC4 – MICKEYMATTER B-Pro Design Computation Lab – Research Cluster 4 Mickey Matter’s research focuses on the development of a highly cost-effective production method, using a compression moulding process. Custom aluminium moulds in three different scales were designed and fabricated using CNC milling. These can then be used to produce cheap, but highly precise pieces. […]
