In light of the city’s turn to cultural projects to enhance the economic situation, the Expo 2020 brings in an excellent opportunity for a scenario where a temporary experimental structure would be built to push the boundaries of architecture, art and technology. The students assembled and programmed the robots while their colleagues developed systems of making that could be translated to the digital realm.
Weaving and Aggregate Components were the two systems that the groups decided to investigate. Physical and digital experiments were conducted to develop a spatial and structural material system, which could be algorithmically translated into a set of instructions that the in-house robots could understand and perform.
For AAVS Dubai 2014 we have built robotic arms that were designed in London, with parts from Hong Kong that were assembled, programmed and developed in Dubai. Setting an unprecedented mode of operation.
