Clay Rotunda / SEMusicLab, indoor circular clay wall

A circular undulating clay wall 5 m high with a 6 m radius built using a method of robotic clay aggregation developed at MAS DFAB and in my thesis project Adaptive Clay Formations. The project was preceded by the construction of a full scale prototype of a quarter of final design in Brunnen, Switzerland. The wall is built to surround a acoustic lab built in a new co-working space in the Gurtenbrauerei in Bern.

Adaptive Clay Formations, clay wall segment

MAS DFAB thesis project where a robotic clay aggregation method developed at MAS DFAB were further explored and refined. The project resulted in a 3.2 m long and 1.2 m high wall segment built using a six axis industrial robot mounted on a movable platform, and built with the robot re-localized three times. In this project we refined robot end effector, we experimented with feedback driven fabrication and trajectory planning for the robotic arm. The project was undertaken by Edurne Morales Zúñiga and myself with tutors David Jenny, Coralie Ming, Nicolas Feihl & Gonzalo Casas at Gramazio Kohler Research, ETH Zürich.
