Digital Possibilities on an Island workshop


The Circular Factory (CF) and The Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalunya (IAAC) invite you to participate in their workshop titled Digital Possibilities on an Island, scheduled for August.

Is it possible to generate high-quality architecture using local wood waste? Can we integrate digital technology with local craftsmanship?

This initiative aims to showcase the potential of robotics and computation in creating sustainable architecture in remote areas like Roatan, Honduras. By leveraging the collective expertise of The CF and IAAC, the project explores the possibilities of utilizing Roatan's raw, green, and untreated wood to design a structure inspired by natural geometries that serves the local community. The research seeks to culminate in constructing a 1:1 prototype gazebo in Roatan, employing computer vision, robotics, and untreated logs of green wood.

During the workshop, participants will use Rhino, Grasshopper, Speckle, Python scripting for computer vision, and ABB robots for the gazebo construction process.
