The workshops on Robotics, Metaverse, and AI, organized by INDEXLAB – Politecnico di Milano, have the objective to offer a new vision of architecture and its manufacturing methodologies. The workshops aim at bringing together visionary companies, advanced designers, and innovation-oriented students to envision new synergies between academic research, architectural practice, and industrial production.
28/6/2022 - 2/7/2022. The workshop aimed at providing the participants an integrated hands-on experience of both “real” and “virtual” technologies. This concept was elaborated by focusing the first 3 days of the workshop on training the participants in 3 main interrelated fields namely: robotic fabrication, metaverse and artificial intelligence. Each of these 3 days was composed of a lecture on the current technologies and research in each field and then followed by a tutorial introducing how some of these technologies is applied in the Architecture and Construction World. The 4th day was reserved for participants to demonstrate their work progress and to express any doubts or general questions regarding the topics. Finally, the last day represented a closure ceremony where the participants could show their final work and discussions on their projects.
As for the project, participants were asked to “design” their own exhibition area in the metaverse on “cryptovoxels” platform. Afterwards, they were required to demonstrate the work produced through robotic fabrication and artificial intelligence inside their exhibition explaining the intent of their work and how they could integrate the 3 introduced worlds into the desired output.
