Roblox aims to explore the feasibility of construction through the new method of discrete digital design.

It investigates the potential of a pre-cast concrete system to enable flexibility and adaptability in construction and form generation. This is achieved through the use of standardised Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) building elements that be snapped together like LEGO pieces, making all construction reversible. A robotic arm assembles the pieces into different large-scale constructions, easily joining them due to the interlocking system. The robot replaces a human, performing an assembly process in a fast and repetitive manner, ensuring higher accuracy and a diminution of construction errors.
