The Robotic Craftsman

Mikayla Heesterman

Timber, coupled with computational tools has the potential to be redefined as a digital-age material for non-standard architecture. This research draws from traditional Japanese timber craftsmanship, which offers unique structural and sustainable advantages. Combining this knowledge with computational tools has led to new complex customisable connections suitable for contemporary fabrication, and a revitalisation of timber craftsmanship in this digital age.
