Researchers at ETH Zurich university have pioneered a method of robotic construction, which is being used to create a computer-designed modular house in the city.Spatial Timber Assemblies by ETH Zurich

The project, known as Spatial Timber Assemblies, uses computers to model the optimum design for individual units, which are then built by a series of robots.

Dezeen recently featured the digital fabrication technique in a one-minute video.

The first robot takes the timber beams and saws them to the correct size. Following an automatic tool change, a second robot drills the holes required for bolting the beams together.
