Flying Gardens: A Robotic Architectural Proposal for a Sessional Garden

Annual Meeting Proceedings

Author(s): Katelyn Hannigan, Ebrahim Poustinchi & Jessica Schultz

Flying Gardens project is an architectural question about the concept of time and change/reconfiguration through revisiting the inside/outside problem in architecture. The project focuses on the inherently architectural qualities manifested through the relationship between static and animated architectural components as well as interiors exterior. Following a flat ontological approach to design the architecture, flying gardens project, studies the potentials of object-oriented design strategies, employing time and motion as vehicles for the conversation. Using an industrial robotic arm, as an animator, to illustrate the possibility of physical architectural animation, allows for formal and spatial but scale‐less relationships to emerge.
