Hosted by the University of British Columbia (UBC)’s Centre for Advanced Wood Processing (CAWP) and School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (SALA), this technical workshop on robotic fabrication was held October 13 – 17 for students and practicing architects to share knowledge and experience with wood design experts.

Using a state-of-the-art eight-axis industrial robotic work cell, participants put into practice the unique technical and conceptual foundations that underpin robotic milling in wood through the development and construction of the Wandering Wood Pavilion, a wooden sculptural bench installation.
