According to architect Achim Menges, founding director of the Institute for Computational Design at the University of Stuttgart, the combination of robots and carbon fiber could propel us into a new era in architecture. He's developing a software program that could allow robots to construct stadium roofs out of the building material he believes is largely underutilized. Menges said, "We're not just looking at a gradual evolution of how things are made. It's a pretty dramatic shift,...
