AD: Made by Robots
Architectural Design | May/June 2014 | profile no 229.
In AD the future of architecture, building and constructing – Made By Robots. Like Flight Assembled Architecture, by Gramazio & Kohler and Rafaello D’Andrea: drones carrying building blocks to make a structure. Or RoboFold’s folded panel system (very good that name: RoboFold, it reminiscent of RoboCop, and things that go wrong in the future) and Robotic Swarm Printing, what also sounds a bit sinister.
But – just as in good scifi – the future is not only a bit scary, but also utterly fascinating. As always Architectural Design is intelligent, intellectually teasing and on the forefront of change.
