ABOUT

Tehran Robotic Architectural Matters is a design to robotic production practice based in Tehran. TRAM explores and develops innovative design materialization processes. It aims to expose forms of advanced design and engineering methodologies in robotics that are currently reinventing core approaches to shaping, making and refitting the built and manufactured environment while encouraging to examine how form and structure may adapt to context and, in particular, how architecture may evolve through its occupation. TRAM negotiates issues of design practice, the nature of collaboration, machine intelligence, creativity, and human craft and investigates the entire chain: from the choice of digital modeling tools to manufacturing process.

تِرَم – معماری روباتیک تهران – استودیوای با محوریت طراحی تا ساخت روباتیک در حوزه ی معماری است. آثار طراحی و پژوهشی استودیوی تِرَم شیوه های شناخته شده و نیز نوین مادیت بخشیدن به معماری را به چالش کشیده و باز تعریف می کنند. تِرَم با سفر به حوزه های محلی و جهانی موضوعات اجتماعی و فناوری معماری، تصویر و مادیتی میان رشته ای از شیوه های طراحی تا ساخت را ترسیم کرده و می سازد. تِرَم موضوعاتی از پدیده و حرفه ی معماری را مورد موشکافی قرار می دهد که خلاقیت و نوآوری در طراحی و ساخت را در نسبت با توانایی های سیستم های سخت افزاری و نرم افزاری مصنوع و مهارت های انسانی درساخت باز تعریف می کنند. این موضوعات زنجیره ای از شیوه های مدل سازی مجازی، شبیه سازی، طراحی محاسباتی، ساخت و روباتیک را شامل می شوند. گروه تِرَم یکی از نخستین استودیو های معماری روباتیک را در تهران پایه گزاری کرده است. تِرَم پروژه های پژوهشی، طراحی و رویداد های تجربی و همایشی را پیرامون روباتیک در معماری هدایت خواهد کرد. معماری روباتیک تهران
