"Traces of Making" has been accepted to be presented at Rob|Arch 2018 (robarch2018.org) through the Rob|Arch 2018 Call for Videos.
Traces of Making is a collaborative design research project, which innovates ceramic three-dimensional (3D) printing techniques in the context of architectural design. The project intends to thematize and reveal the unpredictable, “glitched”, and nuanced nature of designing ceramic architectural components using robotic processes typically understood as highly precise, top-down, and predetermined. Instead, Traces of Making demonstrates a new kind of generative design process based on collaboration between designers, robotic tools, advanced software, and nuanced material behavior through the use of sensing systems, feedback loops, and equal consideration of the agency of each of these parties in the design-making process.
