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.

Euroluna - the European Lunar Exploration Assosiation - is competing for the Google Lunar XPRIZE, a competition launched by Google and the XPRIZE Foundation in 2007.
The winner of the competition gets 20 million dollars - but it's not easy ...
You have to put a rover on the Moon, drive it for 500 meters and send images back to Earth. And it all has to be privately funded.
To do it you need skills, experience, imagination, endurance - and luck ...
We've got most of that covered and we're well under way, but we can always use more support and helping hands.
So if you are interested in the Euroluna project we think you should join the assosiation or make a donation here.
All members get updates and alerts about the project and are invited to our meetings.
