Students erect robotically fabricated wooden bench on Vancouver university campus

Design meets robotics on college campus. Via DeZeen:

The temporary Wander Wood Pavilion was built during the Robot Made: Large-Scale Robotic Timber Fabrication in Architecture student workshop, held by the university’s School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (SALA) and Centre for Advanced Wood Processing (CAWP).

Participants included 15 architecture students and 21 external partners, who were required to fabricate and assemble a wooden installation for the university’s public green using computational tools.

In the final design, two rows of wooden slats steadily change in shape to create the structure’s outline, which curves to a peak. The exterior forms a rounded shell, partially enclosing a public bench inside.

To create this organic shape in wood, the team created a digital 3D model of the structure. This was then segmented into the individual sections that were cut using robotically controlled tools.
