149: Towards robotic fabrication in landscape architecture
Original title: Towards robotic fabrication in landscape architecture

Research in ENGLISH

With the fourth industrial revolution advancements, digital fabrication and automation have been widely adopted in design and manufacturing domains and deliver exceptional architectural design and fabrication potential. Specifically, robotic fabrication, as cutting-edge technology, pushes the boundaries of architecture to reach structural improvements. However, the potential for robotic fabrication of landscape architecture, which goes beyond the automation and maintenance of existing techniques, remains relatively untouched. This research explores the potential of robotic fabrication in landscape architecture by evaluating its applications in architecture. Therefore, a systematic review was conducted on pioneering architectural research groups involved in robotic fabrication projects. The collected projects were classified and analyzed based on their main parameters, including material, the implemented task, final products, and goals. This evaluation system helps to identify new areas of activity that will enhance landscape architecture, and it will help to change the historical link between a landscape architect and his production techniques.
