‘Robotic Skycraper’ by Ryohei Koike and Jarod Poenisch

‘Nested Skyscraper’ by Ryohei Koike and Jarod Poenisch | 2010

“The Nested Skyscraper adapts to climatic, urban, and programmatic conditions with the use of advanced material and robotic construction. Its form and building method derive from the carbon sleeves and fiber-laced concrete performance. It is a composition of multiple layers of louvers which thicken and rotate according to solar and wind exposure.”
