  • >> There's almost an emotional response to a robot,

  • you know, there is this kind of idea that a robot is sort of an artificial human.

  • But of course, all the other things that make architecture what it is are the things that come,

  • you know, beyond the mechanical, beyond the automated.

  • And what Gramazio and Kohler are doing in Zurich that's really fascinating to us is

  • they're breaking away from the idea that a robot is there to do menial, repetitive tasks

  • and they're intervening in that world.

  • They've been able to programme what the robot does.

  • In a way, they're kind of using it as an extension of their own bodies, their own tools,

  • and changing what it does as it moves along.

  • >> Robots have been around for the good part of 90 years.

  • They really got going in the 1970s, the 1980s, and there are more sophisticated robots than this,

  • but the fact that they've been brought into an environment where they're being used as design tools is the exciting thing.

  • >> Now that the tools, both the hardware and software,

  • are becoming more affordable and easier to use,

  • architects have actually been able to use the same kind of tools that have been out of reach for so long.

  • So, yes, it's only the beginning of things,

  • but we really see some opportunities in design and fabrication.

  • They won't necessarily build whole buildings,

  • but this country does have very old building stock;

  • so we literally need to retrofit thousands of buildings every day to meet up with demand.

  • And so it's certainly worthwhile considering how these kind of technologies can work alongside traditionally skilled labour

  • to actually be able to keep this country's buildings up to the standard that they need to be.

  • >> What we're looking at now with these technologies is,

  • we can bring them into the academic environment and students and academics can, in effect,

  • experiment with the idea of building, the idea of making.

  • I think that opens up a very exciting new domain for universities,

  • it might be that we are starting to be regarded potentially as a place to prototype things

  • that might not be prototyped elsewhere.

  • We can carry a certain level of risk that the commercial world can't carry

  • in the sense that research that fails is very valuable,

  • but in the commercial world it's a lot --

  • it's obviously a very different scenario.

  • So I think this technology opens up not just something for architects,

  • but for universities across the whole built environment sector

  • and allows us to do things that can't be done elsewhere.
