The synthesis of data and material, which failed to develop in the early digital age, is being realised in today's architecture. This becomes apparent in various medial, spatial and structural manifestations; where data and material can no longer be interpreted as parallel features but rather as being innate expressions of architecture, that have become essential to construction in a new digital age. Closely related to this development is the increasing use of robots in the building process; enabling the fundamental integration of data and material, programming and construction, where processes are developed based on fixed rules, analysed, and then translated to practical construction. Using robots in architecture has not to date been comprehensively researched; The Robotic Touch examines the the theory and practice robot-based building processes and the specific implications of using robots, within architectural design, looking to the future of this innovative and cutting-edge technology.
