Self-Assembly Lab : Experiments in Programming Matter, Hardback Book

Self-Assembly Lab : Experiments in Programming Matter Hardback


What if structures could build themselves or adapt to fluctuating environments?

Skylar Tibbits, Director of the Self-Assembly Lab in the Department of Architecture at MIT, Cambridge, MA, crosses the boundaries between architecture, biology, materials science and the arts, to envision a world where material components can self-assemble to provide adapting structures and optimized fabrication solutions.

The book examines the three main ingredients for self-assembly, includes interviews with practitioners involved in the work and presents research projects related to these topics to provide a complete first look at exciting future technologies in construction and self-transforming material products.
