Briley Newell – Looking Outwards-03

The ICD/ITKE Research Pavilion, built in 2014-15 at the University of Stuttgart, was constructed using a robotic fabrication process that made the structure initially flexible but reinforced it as the project continued. The design for the Research Pavilion is based on the underwater nest of a water spider. The structure was primarily design as an example and test of the new research regarding computer technology and architectural design. The whole Research Pavilion was built by a robotic arm placed on the inside to reinforce a flimsy shell. The programing behind the robotic arm had to take into account how much pressure to apply and how quickly the arm could move as it produced the carbon boning.
