Delft University of Technology, Netherlands

Delft University of Technology is the oldest and largest technical university of the Netherlands. Its Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment is one of the top 10 architecture schools in the world ranking as 4th in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2015 and plays a key role in design-oriented and technology-driven research. It strongly collaborates with researchers from computer science, electrical engineering, and others within the framework of the Delft Robotics Institute.

Within the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment the Robotic Building group implements research focusing on physically built robotic environments and robotically supported building processes.

Henriette Bier is initiator and leader of the Robotic Building group at Architectural Engineering, TU Delft, associate professor of Digitally-driven Architecture and founding member of the Delft Robotics Institute. She regularly lectures and leads workshops internationally and results of her research have been published and presented in more than 120 journals, books, and exhibits.
