FLIGHT ASSEMBLED ARCHITECTURE. Gramazio & Kohler and D'Andrea
The eponymous catalogue for an exhibition by Swiss architects Gramazio & Kohler in collaboration with systems engineer Raffaello D’Andrea, shown at the Frac Centre in Orléans. The book presents a fascinating exploration of their perspectives and multidisciplinary interests, ranging from computational design and robots to material innovation, plus research on architecture, system design and autonomous robotic technologies. Through detailed diagrams and texts, it gives insight into the exhibition’s realisation – in which an architectural installation was constructed by flying robots – and reveals radical new ways of both thinking about and materialising architecture.
