CRAFTING ROBOTICS FOR ARCHITECTURAL INTELLIGENCE

18th — 20th March

10:30 AM — 10:45 AM (SGT)

LOCATION

This lecture navigates the intersectional study of AI for architectural design and robotic fabrication, a union encounting the future of architecture in the post-humanistic era. Amidst global challenges, it urges a re-evaluation of the relationship between globalization and locality, advocating for the integration of globalized technologies into localized practices. The production paradigm and knowledge landscape of architecture are being reshaped by crafting robotics for architectural intelligence. As the field of design and practice transits into a new era of flourishing development of intelligent and autonomous technologies, it becomes imperative for architectural academia to redefine the symbiotic relationships between humans and technology. We’ll delve into the ‘symbiotic’ intelligence, aiming to rethinking on global warming and new paradigm shift under the influence of future technologies.

Based on research and practice, the discussion will illustrate how this symbiotic relationship can drive innovative, sustainable solutions, and transform the socio-cultural, industrial economics, and environmental resiliency. We are aiming to inspire architects to blur the lines among architects, artifacts, and social processes, contributing to a new understanding of architecture in the post-humanistic era.
