    Studio Professor Greg Lynn led a one-year studio exploring the impact of robotics on architecture; not in terms of fabrication and assembly of buildings but in the literal movement of rooms, facades, vertical transportation, furniture and equipment. The studio combined a small percentage of literal moving rooms or elements with the phenomenal movement of spatial composition and environments. A project was designed for a permanent circus performance theater where robotic movement was not only limited to the stages but was also part of the lobby, seating, restaurant, civic or theater environment. This project began with a visit to several Cirque du Soleil theaters in Las Vegas, an analysis of various theaters in Hollywood and consultations and discussions with Valerie LeBlanc from Cirque.

        RV PROTOTYPE | It is a 1/5th scale model of a house that increases living space by rotating in two axes on a robotic base. In addition to a floor in one orientation, one wall and the ceiling surface can be rotated as new floors. 150m2 of living surface is realized within a 60m2 footprint. Made of a lightweight cored carbon fiber fabric the entire shell weighs less than 50 kilos allowing it to rotate freely. The robotic model was on exhibition at INTERIEUR 2012: Future Primitives from October 20-28 in the Kortrijk Xpo, Hall 4. My Role: Designing, building and programming of the robotics of the RV Prototype Project of Greg Lynn. Installation of the Prototype on site at the Interieur Biennale in Belgium.

          Storefront for Art and Architecture together with Pidgin presented a Cabaret Series: Architecture & Money, an event that explored different notions of value and architecture and the relationship between them. The event consisted of a live auction where a series of posters containing questions posed to architectural figures were auctioned and adjudicated to the bidder able to provide the most accurate answer. Posters contained all proposed answers by the audience. The live auction was followed by a series of monologues. More at www.storefrontnews.org.

            Greg Lynn is innovator in redefining the medium of design with digital technology as well as pioneering the fabrication and manufacture of complex functional and ergonomic forms using CNC machinery. The buildings, projects, publications, teachings and writings associated with his office have been influential in the acceptance and use of advanced materials and technologies for design and fabrication. As design opportunities today extend across multiple scales and media, his studio Greg Lynn FORM continues to define the cutting edge of design in a variety of fields. Lynn has received numerous awards including the American Academy of Arts & Letters Architecture Award in 2003. In 2001, Time Magazine named Lynn one of 100 of the most innovative people in the world for the 21st century. In 2005, Forbes Magazine named him one of the ten most influential living architects. In 2008, he won the Golden Lion at the 11th International Venice Biennale of Architecture. In 2010, he was awarded a fellowship from United States Artists. His work is in the permanent collections of the most important design and architecture museums in the world including the CCA, SFMoMA, ICA Chicago and MoMA. Because of his early studies in philosophy and architecture he has been involved in combining the realities of design and construction with the speculative, theoretical and experimental potentials of writing and teaching. This unique and innovative approach to design has also established him as an influential figure across many disciplines and led to consultations and collaborations with companies like BMW, Swarovski, Alessi, Vitra, Disney and Imaginary Forces. In 2002, he left his position as the Professor of Spatial Conception and Exploration at the ETHZ (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich) and became an Ordentlicher University Professor at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. He is a Studio Professor at UCLA’s school of Architecture and Urban Design where he is currently spearheading the development of an experimental research robotics lab. Since 2000, he has been the Davenport Visiting Professor at Yale University. Lynn graduated from Miami University of Ohio with degrees in both architecture and philosophy and later from Princeton University where he received his Master of Architecture.
