This short two week course explores a futuristic strain of architectural research that lies at the intersection of biology and robotics. Bio-robbotic Architecture focuses on naturally inspired and robotically augmented architecture that can adapt and evolve with the world around it. It extends beyond the typical use biomimetics in architecture as a process tool to create static buildings: Biobotic architecture defines an architecture that goes beyond the mere capacity to interact; it defines a world that repositions the role of the designer as a catalyst of architecture that can adapt and evolve.
