This evening the Storefront for Art and Architecture opens an exhibition of industrial robots capable of building structures more complex and intricate than a human hand ever could. Next week in Chinatown, the robot R-O-B, created by Swiss architects Gramazio & Kohler, will start laying bricks next week for “Pike Loop,” an parabolic structure composed of more than seven thousand carefully stacked bricks. The construction, taking place along the Pike Street pedestrian median between Division Street and East Broadway, is estimated for completion by October 27th. Watch a video of the machine at work after the jump.
