Lunchtime creator talk: Semblr with Ivo Tedbury

Thu 24 May 2018

Semblr's creator Ivo Tedbury on the theory and technologies behind the automated construction system. 

Semblr explores automated construction technologies for the built environment. It suggests a predominantly recyclable material system of engineered timber and steel bricks, designed using data-driven generative algorithms, and robotically assembled without human labour.

In the housing scenario exhibited, Semblr proposes a new model of ‘social housing’, not merely built with government subsidy, but instead driven by the democratised mastery of sustainable, near-zero marginal cost, and fully-automated construction processes.

Ivo Tedbury developed Semblr at the Bartlett School of Architecture (UCL) where it received the Ambrose Poynter Prize & Sir Andrew Taylor Prize. Semblr was also awarded a commendation at the RIBA President’s Medals Awards 2017.

The talk is open to all and free to attend. Please register your attendance here.
