summary As disciplines converge and programmablity becomes ubiquitous from the nano-scale to the human-scale, architecture and construction will likely inherit new processes from design tools, materials, fabrication and construction. This paper outlines the key ingredients for self-assembly and computational construction through a recent project, The Self-Assembly line. This project was commissioned for the 2012 TED Conference, described as “an installation that builds installations,” and was built to show autonomous self-assembly at furniture-scales. A new intuition is proposed for the construction of large-scale structures and gives insight for potentially expanding a designer’s role in self-assembly processes outside of the discipline of architecture. Future applications are outlined for self-assembly and programmable materials at large-scale lengths.
