Plexus Lecture: UCL Bartlett

March 01, 2018

The Plexus Project is an initiative to bring together the creative talent of different disciplines to share techniques, solve problems and build networks of collaboration. The events will happen every other month inviting young designers, architects, engineers, programmers, game designers and visual artists. We will also have one guest connected online to keep the project open to international collaboration. You can also apply to present at the Plexus, making the Plexus an opportunity to showcase your work and connect with industry. This initiative is open to anyone in London that is looking for an informal place to network and learn about new methodologies and workflows. Depending on the success of the project, we will evaluate doing it every month. Send us your suggestions at: info@bartlettplexus.com

The event is completely free and public.

Kuka Innovation Award 2018

October 14, 2017

A team of researchers and students from ICD has been selected as a semi-finalist for the Kuka Innovation award!  The team from the Institute for Computational Design and Construction at the University of Stuttgart combines expertise in algorithmic geometry and the development of robot-based material processing systems. In this project, it aims to provide small and medium-sized companies with access to robot-assisted methods of work. The concept comprises a collaborative robot workbench with an augmented reality interface. The project will demonstrate a woodworking scenario in which a robot assists a human. The team includes Bahar Al Bahar, Ayoub  Lharchi, Oliver  Krieg, Ondrej Kyjanek, Lauren Vasey, and Benedikt Wannemacher.
