In this workshop on Explicit Bricks run by Tobias Bonwetsch and Ralph Baertschi, ETH Zürich we intended to research the logic of a specific fabrication process combined with a constructive system as the main driver of architectural design. Robotic processes were applied that unlike common CNC machines not only allow the control of the machines movement, but the actual fabrication process itself. Rather than defining a specific geometry, we generated designs by programming specific material manipulations.
