AbstractThis paper discusses the design and construction of brick structures with the aid of a Cable Driven Parallel Robot (CDPR) and defines the role of robotic equipment within the context of design and construction complexity. Explored is the impact of computational workflows with the deployment of scalable and dexterous Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) equipment with standardized components on a construction site. The use of this design and construction setup reduces assembly complexity and creates increased opportunity for execution of design intent. This shift from using a skilled labor force to robotic assembly increases designer ability to control fundamental decisions relating material expressiveness deployment in the field.
