|:||As part of the 16th International Architecture Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia, the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia introduced one of the world’s largest 3D printed structures. Cloud Pergola is an installation that crosses the boundaries of architecture, art, precision engineering, computational design and robotic fabrication. As part of the Cloud Pergola project, Croatian architect Alisa Andrasek created the design, that brings into dynamic convergence natural forces and man-made structures. Inspired by the complexity and beauty of cloud formations, Andrasek mathematically captured a snapshot of architectural fabric at high resolution as a complex synthesis of novel tectonics, complex porosity, light filtering and shadow casting. The structure was created using computational simulation, big data and robotic 3D printing by Ai Build. Ai Build, a London based company specializing in robotics and artificial intelligence was brought in to bring the intricate structure to life. Thanks to Ai Build’s advanced 3D printing software and hardware, the complex structure was seamlessly printed by robots in London and shipped to Venice in large pieces for assembly. The pavilion measures 3.3m in height and covers an area of 57.6sqm, making it one of the world’s largest structures to be 3D printed entirely by robots.|
