This work develops, implement and test a method and model for the distribution of material in relation to thermal performances through robot based extrusion of concrete. The aim is to suggest a way for architecture to use advanced fabrication techniques towards environmental passive strategies, which potentially decrease a buildings operative energy budget, while creating articulated thermal sensations for humans. Through computational, material and design explorations, by prototypes and a final demonstrator, the work proposes how thermal mass can be organized both in terms of its robot based successive fabrication based layering and as an approach to generate an assembly of thermal based building blocks into architectural structures.
