REGIONAL ROBOTS: ARCHITECTURAL MACHINES FOR (LA's) URBAN ECOLOGIES
This course will explore the design, fabrication, and documentation of architectural robots for the seven distinct ecological zones of Los Angeles (Coastline, Coastal Mountains, Interior Mountains, Peninsular Mountains, Coastal Plain, Inland Valleys, Desert). Instead of approaching robotics through problem-solving or task completion, we will speculate what other types of architectural machines can be imagined for these public ecological spaces.
