Production City / Robotic Ceramics in Architecture

By combining traditional and emerging technologies – ceramics and robotics - a group project, Robotic Ceramics, investigates the possibilities in the new means of manufacturing. Looking within the process of current manufacturing practice, it proposes and examines viable techniques through experiment with physical objects.

B.A.T.

Informed Ceramic is a project that shows possibilities for manufacturing new ceramic unit-modules that break away from the existing unit modules (brick, panel, tile, etc.), by making an attempt at an architecture scale ceramic deposition on surfaces, based on the combination of 3D printing technology and industrial articulated robotic arm technology. Informed Ceramic provides an experience in advance possibilities for utilizing ceramic-based robotic 3D printing processes in architecture.

Digital Fossil - Deviant Object

Pil Joon Jeon

Right before a technological leap happened, an abnormal technological development for resolving almost impossible problems with limited capabilities often results in a bizarre but beautiful objects that could not be achieved by regular evolutionary steps. The lattice supports infilling void with various patterns is a trail of the output and intriguing object in itself. Digital Fossil – Deviant Object is a record of creating a fossil of space with clay by using a 3D printing algorism and robotics.

Reformable Mold

Hyun Parke

The process of mold-making and casting is used in widespread areas in modern industry yet the cost of building a master mold is often unjustifiable until many copies have been produced. 3D printing lacks material variety and speed. Reformable Mold investigates and suggests application viability between the gap those two common processes are missing.

(Un)Natural Ceramic Tiles

Dongwook Hwang

Ceramic printing has own dilemma; before its dried state, clay is flexible. As it dries, it finds itself in a specific form depending of environment. Ceramic printing is specialized in morphing clay, yet it can minimize the form-finding process of clay. (Un)Natural Ceramic Tiles focus on understanding the form-finding process of clay and reinterpreting a natural form using digital tools such as 3D scanning and robotics.
