MA work

Using a modern and futuristic form of building can overcome stereotypes, such as that underground life is often associated with poverty and grubbiness. Using new materials and robotic technologies, a high luxury level of architecture, environment and lifestyle could be achieved. Robotics are to be used, not only because of its well-known properties but also to achieve the sophisticated 3D targets which make this kind of design possible.
