The Design Robotics Group is a research unit that looks at the future of design and construction in the context of robotic and computer-numerically controlled (CNC) fabrication. The DRG work is inherently interdisciplinary in that it combines issues of computation, materials and assemblies with CNC and robotic fabrication as well as with automated manufacturing. The research balances the response to real world problems with the need to expand our imagination and broaden design scope through a more speculative exploration of emerging design to fabrication technologies. Full-scale installations and prototypes are integral to the DRG work.
