Combing traditional craft with new technologies, this work sought to integrate traditional wood joints with robotic fabrication and a generative grammar-based digital design language. The project culminated in a design for a museum which was physically modelled at 1:26 scale; this model was exhibited at the 2019 Shenzhen Biennale as a part of the “Eyes of the City” display.
