Sigrid Brell-Cokcan

Sigrid Brell-Cokcan and Johannes Braumann founded the Association for Robots in Architecture in 2010 with the goal of making industrial robots accessible to the creative industry. Towards that goal, the Association is developing innovative software tools such as KUKA|prc (parametric robot control) and initialized the Rob|Arch conference series on robotic fabrication in architecture, art, and design. Robots in Architecture is a KUKA System Partner and has been validated as a research institutions by national and international research agencies such as the European Union’s FP7 program. Recently, Sigrid founded the new chair for Individualized Production in Architecture (IP) at RWTH Aachen University. Johannes is heading the robotics lab at UfG Linz and leading the development of KUKA|prc. Their work has been widely published in peer reviewed scientific journals, international proceedings, and books, as well as being featured in formats such as Wired, Gizmodo, FAZ, and RBR.
