Drones and robots weave carbon-fibre pavilion based on moth webs

The pavilions are overseen by Achim Menges, who heads up the school’s Institute for Computational Design (ICD), and Jan Knippers from the Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE). This year researcher Marshall Prado also joined the team.

Finding the previous robotically woven carbon-fibre structures limited by the working space of the industrial robotic arms used, this year the team wanted to develop a method for making larger-scale structures.
