Brick in Architecture 2017

The international “Brick in architecture” event 2017 focuses on bridging the gap between tradition and modern architecture. In guided tours the traditional and historic sites of Hamburg will be discovered as well as the modern urban development taking place in the Hafen City – the largest urban redevelopment project in Europe


Tobias Bonwetsch is one of the experts holding a keynote speech revolving around the topic: Construction and architecture of the future in a digital environment.

In his talk entitled 'Towards a New Paradigm of the Automatic', Tobias will discuss recent Robotic Brickwork projects realized in the last couple of years. Specifically, the talk will focus on how the close integration of the robotic assembly process for brickwork within the software BrickDesign can synchronize the design and fabrication process and leverage new potentials for contemporary architecture.
