Robotics - Public Debate 2019

About this Event

The third edition of the Norman Foster Foundation’s Robotics Public Debates will take place next 5 November 2019, with the support of the Rolex Institute. As Atelier Mentor Xavier De Kesteiler points out, ‘Over the past ten years, designers have been teased by the potential applications of 3D printing. Anything from 3D-printed cars to violins; 3Dprinting has been proclaimed to be the inception of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Although 3D printing has been a major disrupter in medical sciences, mechanical engineering and to a certain extent consumer products, it could be argued that its true impact on the architecture industry is yet to come.’

The Robotics Public Debates will take place in two blocks. Each block will consist of keynotes, a debate between three speakers who are all experts in the fields of manufacturing and digital fabrication and a question and answer session.

With the participation of:

Philip Beesley, Director of the Living Architecture Systems Group, Toronto, Canada; Professor at the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Canada and the European Graduate School (EGS), Visp, Switzerland

Adrian Bowyer, Founder and Director of RepRap Ltd, Nootdorp, The Netherlands

Anna Dyson, Founding Director of the Yale Center for Ecosystems in Architecture (CEA), New Haven, United States

Xavier De Kestelier, Principal and Head of Design Technology and Innovation at HASSELL Studio, London, United Kingdom

Frédéric Migayrou, Deputy Director of the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Centre de Création Industrielle (MNAM-CCI) at the Centre Pompidou, Paris, France

Claudia Pasquero, Co-founder of ecoLogicLab, London, United Kingdom

Liam Young, Director of the Master of Science in Fiction and Entertainment at the Southern California Institute of Architecture, Los Angeles, United States

Tim Stonor, Managing Director of Space Syntax, London, United Kingdom; and chair of the 2019 Robotics Public Debates.
