Celebrating the new exhibition, a new architectural commission titled ‘Up-Sticks’ has also been revealed this week, as reported by The Courier.

Created by Gramazio Kohler and students of the MAS Architecture and Digital Fabrication at ETH Zurich, the commission was designed to demonstrate the creativity that can result from humans and robots working together.

Using a human-robotic fabrication technique, ‘Up-Sticks’ is made from over 2,000 planks and beech dowels that curves along the length of the gallery.

Hello, Robot opens tomorrow at the V&A Dundee, running until February 9, 2020.
