Architects and roboticists in Zurich have combined forces to create the In-situ Fabricator, a bricklaying robot able to act autonomously and learn on the job. According to Matthias Kohler, contributing researcher at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, the In-situ is "the first machine that can actually go on construction sites and build non-standard designs, meaning designs which can vary and adapt to the local conditions directly in the building site." If In-Situ Fabricator and machines...

Architects and roboticists in Zurich have combined forces to create the In-situ Fabricator, a bricklaying robot able to act autonomously and learn on the job. According to Matthias Kohler, contributing researcher at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, the In-situ is “the first machine that can actually go on construction sites and build non-standard designs, meaning designs which can vary and adapt to the local conditions directly in the building site.” If In-Situ Fabricator and machines like it can be mass produced at an affordable price, this robotic technology could result in a disruptive paradigm shift in the construction industry.
