Too often, architectural experiments within academia have been restricted to explorations of form or theoretical arguments about aesthetics. The Flight Assembled Architecture project by  Gramazio & Kohler and Raffaello d’Andrea (in cooperation with ETH Zurich) goes beyond the visual concerns of architecture, presenting an accurate model of construction, using remote controlled mini helicopters. Flight Assembled Architecture is on display at the FRAC Centre in Orléans, France.

The Singularity is near! Cool and scary…

This extended movie filmed at the FRAC Centre in Orléans shows in full how a group of flying robots created by Swiss architects Gramazio & Kohler and Raffaello D’Andrea stacked 1500 polystyrene bricks to build a six metre-high tower.
