Will Robots Build Your Next Project?
The architects, Fabio Gramazio and Matthias Kohler of Zurich, believe that combining robots and computer-aided design will revolutionize architecture.
"[T]he point of Gramazio and Kohler's research is not to put the bricklayer out of a job. Their latest installation is primarily supposed to be for the purposes of architectural research -- a test of the potential and limitations of this production technique with respect to a contemporary design culture, as they put it.
Gramazio and Kohler's research team already used R-O-B to build a oscillating wall at last year's Architecture Biennale in Venice."
