Project ‘On The Bri(n)ck,’ a co-op between computer-aided design and computer-aided construction departments at Harvard University, employed the use of a robot to build a wave-like double-wall structure from wooden bricks.
Professor Ingeborg M. Rocker and Graduate School of Design students at Harvard University programmed the crafty robot arm to place 4,100 wooden bricks together to create the complex double-curvature walls.
The project, which was originally created to highlight material and technical limits, may also be used as a model for digital design and education.
