This research project primarily aims to challenge the production of concrete components without the need for any formwork. Additionally, it enables the fully automated fabrication of unique designs with complex geometries. The 3D printing method for hollow concrete structures strategically utilizes the material only where necessary, thereby achieving a more sustainable approach to concrete architecture.

This project not only emphasises the development of large-scale architectural components but also explores new form expressions which are materialised and shaped through the material property of concrete, the movement of the robotic arm and fabrication devices within a transient moment. Aside from the development of this technology, the project uses a six-axis freedom of industrial robotic arm and concrete material properties to reveal unexplored aesthetic aspects of form, unlike the typical FDM 3D printing technology. More specifically, based on a complex and coherent tool path, which includes varying levels of spacing, the robot's speed and orientation, and the material over a specific period of time, it creates free-form curved surface shapes.

ROSO is an interdisciplinary research team. The main objective of the laboratory is to use innovative robotics technology and computational design thinking to provide diverse intelligent construction processes and solutions. Through the collision of various emerging technologies, ROSO aims to open up discussions on "the imagination of architecture" and "the possibilities of construction.
