Wood Pavilion @ AZW, Vienna

As part of an inter-universitary cooperation, Robotic Woodcraft supported the robotic fabrication of the “Addition” wood pavilion. Designed by students of TU Vienna’s Institute for Timber Construction (Prof. Winter) under the guidance of Baris Cokcan, the pavilion was to be built in a extremely short timeframe in order to be ready in time for an exhibition at the AZW architecture center, located in Vienna’s famous Museumsquartier.

One of the main challenges was the multi-axis milling over several hundred knots at a low budget. After generating the robot code using Grasshopper and the Association for Robots in Architecture’s software KUKA|prc (parametric robot control), two KR16s worked in tandem to precisely mill the wooden elements.
