Last Wednesday the Boston Society of Architects hosted the opening for their new exhibit, Volumetric Robotics, featuring work from a workshop at the MIT Department of Architecture taught by Brandon Clifford. The course explored the tradition of volumetric construction in ancient civilizations, a tradition lost in the economical veneer cladding typical today. The product is a collection of walls, columns, and other prototypes, all created by students with the help of robotic technologies.
The class also published a collection of essays about the process, on view at the exhibit.
The exhibit is on view until May 24th and is well worth the visit!
