Rob|Arch 2016 – Call for Videos

Every two years, as part of the Rob|Arch conference on robotic fabrication in architecture, art, and design, we send out a Call for Videos and publish the best submissions on the Robots in Architecture Vimeo channel. The videos of the past years were accessed more than 1.3 million times, making the Vimeo channel a central hub for anyone investigating new and exciting robotic applications.

As part of this year’s Rob|Arch we are again asking architects, designers, researchers, artists and anyone else working with robots in a creative way to submit their videos as part of the Rob|Arch 2016 Call for Videos.

A multidisciplinary jury will view all videos and select the best submissions. The accepted videos will be properly referenced at all times and displayed without any advertisements. One initial still image will be added for each video, stating the title, author, and a Rob|Arch 2016 logo.

The videos will also be publicly shown to an expert-audience at the Rob|Arch 2016 Conference in Sydney.

We invite everyone to submit a video, including authors of Rob|Arch 2016 papers who want to showcase their projects.
