SoA Exhibit: Ultrastructures

Meggers, Kilian, Aviv

Ultrastructures is a conference and exhibition dedicated to exploring the union of formal design processes at the macro scale with fundamental physical processes at the micro scale.

Embodied Computation Lab, Cool Oculus




This M.Arch project at Princeton University's School of Architecture investigates the relationship between the loom and the robot, questioning what it means to weave and thus questioning contemporary architectural tectonics.
