This project presents the products of a workshop completed at the College of Architecture and Urban Planning at Tongji University, Shanghai, China with students led by Professors Matias del Campo and Sandra Manninger. The project is a continuation of Autonomous Tectonics, a series of experiments contributing to research conducted at the University of Michigan. The project uses a 7-axis robot and plastic extruder to generate a series of proof ofconcept models that explore the potential autonomy and “controlled uncertainty” of robotic fabrication in the production of potentialities for architectural production.
