Norman Foster Foundation Atelier Robotics

November 20, 2017

This week our first Robotics Atelier takes place, in which ten students from all around the world will explore the potential for this field as applied to building and construction technologies. 

Supported by the Rolex Institute and held in the Madrid Headquarters of the Norman Foster Foundation, the Atelier consists of several lectures, seminars and workshops in which renowed specialists and researchers will guide the students in this experience, headed by Professor Matthias Kohler. With the collaboration of Universal Robots – the leading robotics manufacturer – the atelier will be able to use three units of its highly flexible robot arm, the UR5 Robot, that will help explore  possible developments and ramifications in what may turn out to be the second digital revolution.

On Wednesday 22 November, Professor Matthias Kohler will be giving a lecture in the Auditorium Fundación Telefónica, followed by a conversation with Amelie Klein, open to the general public, free entry until full capacity. If you are interested in attending, please contact us at
