This research focuses on the construction and maintenance of stone architecture by adapting robotic abrasive-wire cutting processes for Australian sandstones. Produced with the support of Gosford Quarries the project is a work in progress of generating experimental prototypes towards wave jointed modular stone construction. The research team includes Dr Simon Weir, Dion Moult, Shayani Fernando, Dr Rob Saunders and Dr Dagmar Reinhardt. We acknowledge the support of Gosford Quarries, Garfagnana Innovazione, Digital Stone Project and the University of Sydney.
