Abstract: The paper delves into the unique affordances of robotic production in architecture and their growing potential to reshape the discipline when paired with Artificial Intelligence (AI). Over the past decade, a range of robots have been engaged within architectural production processes including fabrication, assembly, construction and real time responsiveness to materials and situational variances. The paper emphasizes the differences between the two-decade old paradigm of digital fabrication and the emerging paradigm of what we have termed and defined as robotic production.
