Here at ArchDaily we are still pretty amped about the Flight Assembled Architecture exhibit by Gramazio & Kohler and Raffaello d’Andrea, in cooperation with ETH Zurich. Located at the FRAC Center in Orleans, France, the exhibit features flying drones constructing an architectural structure at the scale of a 600m high “vertical village” out of foam blocks. Feel the excitement of viewers as this video documents the process of the growing structure. The exhibit continues on until February 19th.
The Flight Assembled Architecture exhibit in Orleans, France opened Friday. The exhibit is the first of its kind as flying drones construct architectural structures.
