Could buildings one day build themselves?

It sounds unbelievable, but the basic tenants of design are being transformed by advances in materials and production methods that borrow principles from molecular assembly, but at a macro scale.

Join Skylar in a hands-on lab that will introduce designers to the future of additive manufacturing and programmable matter.
