The theme of iA#5 is Robotics in Architecture
Understanding buildings from a life-cycle perspective with respect to their economical and ecological impact on society at large requires the development of unprecedented concepts and practical applications for interactive, robotic architecture, leading to the emergence of active and pro-active building components, which act and interact in ever-changing environments. Furthermore, this requires the development of seamless, robotics supported design, fabrication, assembly, operation and maintenance processes. The fifth IA issue on robotics addresses all these aspects on some level focusing on reconfigurable architecture that is incorporating sensing-actuating mechanisms in order to enable buildings to interact with their users and surroundings.
The iA-bookazine series brings together interdisciplinary contributions on the topic of 'Interactive Architecture (iA)' from researchers, students, guest lecturers from Hyperbody, Factulty of Architecture, Delft University of Technology and experts from various other organizations. This fifth issue consists of papers, educational reports, workshops, dialogues and related information.
