Creative Robotics

by Karl Singline


   Creative Robotics workshops aim to investigate the state-of-the-art application of robotics at various scales from the

urban fabric right down on-site construction medthods. With the adaptation of robotics in architecture & other creative

industries, there is access to new opportunities through the application of these emergent technologies within design,

fabrication and construction that has the potential to challenge traditional means. Over the course of our workshops

the primary goal is to explore the adaptation of these synchronous technologies as they relate to existing workflows

and applications of physicalising the digital, to generate new and exciting approaches to the built environment.

Learning Objectives

 Students will be introduced to emergent technologies and methodologies such as parametric design and control of a KUKA industrial robotic arm using tools such Rhino, Grasshopper & KUKA|prc. Key concepts introduced will be the workflow involved with integrating automation and robotics within a creative environment for rapid prototyping & new fabrication methods. 

Students will walk away with fundamental knowledge of Rhino, Grasshopper & KUKA|prc. They will be prepared to conceptualize, program and run robotic programs through the software and ideas raised over the intensive five day workshop. This includes the creation, exportation and running of KUKA Robot Language (KRL) via parametric modelling tools.



Karl Singline is a graduate architect and roboticist from Australia. After graduating from the University of Tasmania with

a Master of Architecture, where he played a key role in integrating a KUKA robotic arm into the curriculum for both the

school of architecture as well as other faculties and community groups, he launched his popular YouTube channel with

over 100,000 views, specializing in tutorials on visual programming and robotics.

He has travelled the world delivering cutting-edge workshops specialising in introducing the core concepts of thinking

robotically, visual programming and developing processes to physicalize the digital through the real-world application

of robotics.

As a full-time researcher within Creative Robotics, Karl works on personal research as well as partnering with external

industry partners to further explore new ways of adapting robotic technologies to architecture and other creative



Andres is a software trainer and developer since the 1980s. He has developed applications for diverse

design markets as well as training materials for different CAD and design software products including

AEC Metric PRO, Mepal Draw, and the Integrator (BIM) for AutoCAD (2010-2014), as well as the

community of training materials for Rhinoceros®.

Andres has been working with the Rhinoceros® team since the very early stages; he is now the head of

the McNeel Southeast US & Latin American Division. He also serves as the worldwide director of the

Computational Design and Fabrication community called RhinoFabStudio® , in

addition to the Generative Jewelry & Fashion Design community GJD3D , and

Generative Furniture Design community GFD3D .

Andres has written numerous multimedia learning products for Rhinoceros®, Flamingo, Grasshopper,

RhinoCAM, etc. His latest work is related to a card game, Sudohopper3D, which draws on fundamental

thinking processes to interactively learn generative and computational design.


Luis Pacheco is a graduate architect from University of La Salle Bajío México with a master in Robotics and Advanced

Construction from the Instiutute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC), co-founder of MakerMex first mexican 3D

printer manufacturing company and recognized as MIT's Innovators under 35 Mexico 2016.


A certificate of completion will be supplied by Creative Robotics and Association for Robotics in Architecture for each successful participant.

In the workshop the student will be able to develop three projects:

-Pick and Place algorithms

-Drawing algorithms 

-Additive Manufacturing algorithm

We will have a videocall with Johannes Braumann lead developer of Kuka PRC and Karl will advice and help with you develop a personal project.
