# R-O-B by Gramazio & Kohler in Venice's biennal

Fabio Gramazio and Matthias Kohler are going more and more into details in their reseach about robotic aided construction. After Gantenbein Winery (see the movie) and their Seroussi Pavilion's Competition entry, they invaded Switzerland's Venice's Biennal Pavilion with their bricks walls assembled by R-O-B (he's a robot by the way !).
I would say qualities and faults are quite the same than for other projects; notably, bricks are ugly and the space created could have been much more interesting... In addition it would have been great to see the machine assembling the walls LIVE !
Anyway, interesting people are too rare to be devaluated so let's thank and congratulate Switzerland for its choice !
