The international Association for Robots in Architecture is originally a spin off association of Vienna University of Technology. Its goal is to make industrial robots accessible for the creative industry, artists, designers and architects, by sharing ideas, research results and technological developments.
Founded in December 2010 by Sigrid Brell-Cokcan and Johannes Braumann, robots in architecture is an open platform for everybody interested in the creative use of and innovative fabrication with industrial robots.
Robots in Architecture is engaged in applied research, soft- and hardware development, “robot pedagogics” – and in the question: how soon will robots revolutionize architecture?
We pursue the association’s goal by offering workshops and holding lectures at international conferences, schools, and universities, and by maintaining the Robots in Architecture homepage, which serves as a hub for all things robotic in architecture, art, and design.
In 2011, Robots in Architecture presented KUKA|prc, a plugin for Grasshopper that for the first time enables robot control from within architectural software. It is continuously updated with new features and freely available for Robots in Architecture members.

TETRA GmbH was founded in 1991 by Dipl.-Ing. Olaf Mollenhauer and Dr.-Ing. Andreas Karguth at high-tech location of Ilmenau. In the beginning of the company, products for medical and laboratories technology were designed and distributed. In 1999, the OEM-development and production was strengthened for the electronics sector and international networks were built. Due to a continuous growth, it was necessary to expand the company building in 2004 to create new space for new employees and developments. In 2005 TETRA established a new strategy to put focus on new technologies and to distribute proprietary products. Today TETRA is a company, which is worldwide leading pioneer in sensors and robotics with its patented technologies.
