Video: SCI-Arc Robot House

SCI-Arc‘s introduction of the Robot House (spring 2011) – a multifunctional lab that enables the exploration of advanced techniques, manipulation of high tech materials, and numerous  methods for simulation – has brought about a new and intriguing component to the school. Designed by faculty members Peter Testa and Devyn Weiser, its primary goal is the advancement of next generation platforms for the experimentation and future speculation of architecture.

The state-of-the-art Staübli robotic systems are housed within a 1,000 sqf double height research room between studio spaces and the shop.  Given the nature of work that is being produced at SCI-Arc, it will be interesting to see the new projects that take full advantage of the Robot House and the adjacent Robotics & Simulation Lab.
