A City for Robots in the Age of Limitless Demand and  Consumption of Goods


A building by and for robots

A City for Robots in the Age of Limitless Demand and Consumption of Goods is a concept for a self-sufficient automated system for producing energy and goods for the city of Naples. The project is conceived as a city inside of a building — a city built by and for machines, based on their operating system, dimensions, footprint, movement and energy consumption. The project uses parametric design to produce a dynamic urban layout defined by a circulation grid that is interrupted by voids shaped according to the machines’ various modes of production. A City for Robots... imagines an urban design not centred on people and instead driven by the continued acceleration of automation in industries.
