Robots are increasingly embedded in our built environment, and are being used to design, fabricate, and control it. The title of Green’s recent book, “Architectural Robotics” is defined as interactive, partly intelligent, meticulously designed physical environments. The more active connotation of “Robotic Building” suggests the process of realizing the built environment, from conceptualization to use, using computational and robotic means. In dialogue, Green and Bier consider the emerging relationship of robotics and the built environment by referencing design activities of their own, and together, they envision a capacious, cyber-physical home for all of us.
