Autonomous tectonics implements techniques that allow the process to be the sole guide of design. For this particular process we were interested in the elastic properties that are existing in silicone; in particular how this could translate to column design. Our efforts were to design a tool for the robot that would disperse the silicone on a ‘cylinder’ for the initial prototypes.
In combination with thermal plastic we were able to create structural agents that would help silicone rise in height. The output gave us a textured pattern of the plastics that offered varied light distribution.
