Software that adapts to uncertainty coordinates multiple robots to cooperate on tasks
"Because if there's one thing that we can absolutely rely on when it comes to robotics, is that things will never, ever work the way that they're supposed to, so if we ever hope to get them to reliably do anything, algorithms like this are going to be critical."

The ArchiLab Naturalising Architecture exhibition closed last night at the FRAC in Orleans, however our National Art Museum of China (NAMOC) and Babiy Yar models are joining the FRAC's permanent collection. Here are few photos of the NAMOC model.NAMOC is a collaboration with Robert Stuart-Smith. More on the project can be found here.
In its heyday, plastic was viewed as a revolutionary advancement--safer and lighter than glass, cheap to manufacture, and useful in countless commercial applications. In fact, in the early 1960's architects in the USSR even tried building entire houses out of the stuff.

Humans are far from the only creatures with the ability to shape the environment in their favor. From insects and arachnids to marine invertebrates and mammals, the animal kingdom is rife with members who all construct their own habitats. Here are the most prolific builders in Animalia.

Nike continues to push the limits of innovation and design by debuting its third football cleat built using 3D printing technology.
In an increasingly complex world, how do we know what is 'good'?Everything is shifting: political situations, financial structures, ecological strategies. How do we design for a complex and contradictory world? How should we equip designers to deal with change and uncertainty - not just for survival, but to flourish?
Inspired by termites’ resilience and collective intelligence, a team of computer scientists and engineers at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University has created an autonomous robotic construction crew. The system needs no supervisor, just simple robots that cooperate.
Some of the most famous cities in history were never built. These 10 Utopian cities may have been failures, but they expressed our ideas about what the future of human civilization could look like. And many ideas contained in them continue to influence us today.
