Pratt recently acquired two industrial robots and has created a robotics facility where students can access the technology for robotics seminars and studios. The Institute is one of the first art and design schools in the country to incorporate robotics into its curriculum.

Mark Parsons, director of production technologies in the School of Architecture, and his team, led by Cole Belmont, CNC manager, set up the robotics lab in the School of Architecture.

This short video explores how recent developments in robotics are making robots valuable tools for designers and shows how architecture students in Adjunct Assistant Professor of Undergraduate Architecture Ezra Ardolino’s robotics seminar began working with the Institute’s new robots last fall.
