//Assignment Agenda

The objective of the project is based on the research line SO.AR (Soft architecture) of Digital Matter Studio 2018/2019 which deals with the understanding of a material system which can passively actuate to provide ventilation and shading. The purpose of creating a structure that responds to the environment reduces the need for extra active energy. The material system consists of adding Graphene to the mixture of a silicon based soft robot with ethanol filling the chambers. Thus when the sun radiation hits on its surface , the soft robot would rise due to the inflation produced by the Ethanol bubbles to elevate this structure.

SO.LU.RO is an acronym for Soft Lunar Robots. Because of the high surface temperature of the moon, these soft robots can passively activate themselves even on such an hostile environment.
