This paper by Clay Odom uses two recently completed projects to outline an approach to overcoming tendency to separate the objective and subjective. It describes an approach which is positioned within contemporary theory and explored through processes, methods and outcomes.
Robotic assembly technologies have been introduced in the field of architecture, opening new design and construction possibilities. This paper by Rui Oliveira and Jose Pedro Sousa intends to examine their application by examining how they can be used to connect with the traditions in brick construction.
