  • Tour Leader: Caitlyn Parry
  • Program Dates: 9 April 2018 – 14 May 2018 (3 weeks in Melbourne and 10 days in Bangkok)
  • Availability: 12
This will be the seventh collaboration between RMIT and Francois Roche and will be offered as an intensive elective course during the first half of semester (3 weeks in Melbourne and 10 days in Bangkok).  The elective is open to students in level 5 and above.
The Bangkok Workshop will explore 1:1, in situ, urban robotic fabrication. In so doing we will investigate novel approaches to architectural fabrication and assembly and their implications for design. The “in situ” nature of the workshop will develop large scale 3d concrete printing procedures and “know-how” of construction by working with a “monolithic” approach rather than through component based assembly logics. Within this approach one material assumes different complexities and constraints (structural, spatial, topological) according to the control over how material is composited, extruded and deposited but a robotic arm.  We will work with real-time robotic control systems and a small KUKA Agilus robot to engage with unpredictable materials and within the complex working environments of Bangkok’s Chinatown. The elective will culminate in the design and construction of a structure from a 3d printed shotcrete-fibre aggregate and an accompanying short film.

Program cost
Approximate total cost of flights, accommodation and incidentals in Bangkok is $1200 AUD.
