Slide1 People have always inhabited spaces. Humans have always adapted their functions to these spaces which they occupy. If a building is constructed to fulfil an outlined function, why then should its occupants need to adapt to it? This is neccessary because constant renovations are impracticle and expensive, and structural changes are often near-impossible. So we change. We adapt. Adaptive architecture, as a theory, suggests that the architecture can adapt to our functions instead – moving it’s walls and floors, creating and closing opening. The truth of this though, is that buildings that are constantly in a state of motion are uninhabitable. Fixed prices per square metre, neighbours, nice furniture, these basic neccessities all inhibit the obvious application of adaptive architecture. Self-assembly is the best type of adaptive structures, offering the most fluid and infinite variations of potentialities. Self-assembly also leads to the true application of adaptive architecture: high risk areas and environments. These high risk areas range from subterrainean to extra-terrestrial construction. It also includes the more current needs of post-natural disaster relief. The application of a system which can spontaneously build a structure allows connectivity in flood zones, support of unstable structures post-earthquakes, as well as unmanned access to high radiation zones to create containment structures. These few applications listed here are some of the many needs for an unmanned construction system.   Slide2 Slide3 Slide4 Slide5 Slide6 1-01 2-01 3-01 4-01 5-01 6-01 7-01 8-01 9-01  11-0110-01 Slide7 Slide8 Slide9 Slide14 Slide15 Slide16 Slide17 Slide18 Slide19 Slide20 Slide21 Slide22 Slide23 Slide24 Slide25 Slide26 Slide27 Slide28 Slide29 Slide30 Slide31 Slide32 Slide33 move_5 move_31 move_59 move_84 move_100 fun_3 fun_20 fun_46 fun_70 fun_86 fun_100 Slide34 abSlide37 Slide38 Slide39 Slide40 Slide41 Slide42 Slide43 Slide44 Slide45 Slide46 Slide47 Slide48 Slide49 Slide50 Slide51 Slide52 Slide53 Slide54 Slide55 Slide56 Slide57 Slide58 roll1_0 roll1_32 roll1_76 roll1_112 roll1_148 roll1_178 Slide60 Slide61 flood4_1 flood4_17 flood4_47 flood4_79 flood4_117 flood4_125 l-bridge9_0 l-bridge9_22 l-bridge9_56 l-bridge9_92 l-bridge9_108 l-bridge9_125 Slide64 Slide65 Slide66 Slide67 Slide68
