Rules: System with simple rules: Red indicates the direction of growth, Blue should touch ground and give stability and domino spots award a score to the resulting design.


The projects experiment with algorithmic procedures and speculate on the possibility of robotic construction, to be performed using simple scripting procedures, CNC and laser cutters and role-play – not just as collaborative means of production but also in order directly to incorporate performative social aspects directly into the structures
