Abstract

Together, they developed the first architectural installation assembled by flying robots. The installation’s 1,500 modules are cooperatively assembled by a group of quadrotor helicopters, which are governed by mathematical algorithms that translate digital design data into flight behavior. What unfolds is a 1:100 scale model of an architectural vision for a 600 metre high “Vertical Village” for 30,000 inhabitants. In documenting the project, this book reveals a radically new way of thinking about and materialising architecture .
