BUILDSMART 2011 – R.P.I./Politecnico Di Torino

Today we’re gonna do something a little different, and a little light in terms of content, but we think you’ll like it. Here’s a series of videos from the currently in progress studio from RPI and Politecnico di Torino students, in Italy.  Creating architectural components, and using arduino controllers, the students create pieces that react to given variables.  See some of the process videos next!
