luis QUINONES: This research deals primarily with Non-Linear Systems, Termite Structures, Robotics + Algorithmic design. The chosen site for this project is on the Shackleton Crater Rim on the South Pole of the Earth’s Moon. The project timeline spans from [0 – 60 +] years, the primary focus occurs from year [0 – 20+] where the deployment of robots to the Cabeus Crater will facilitate construction during the pre human arrival period. The Robots are based on termite behavior, characterized by programming local interactions which give rise to emergent structures. This project ends with the arrival of the first human settlers on the Moon, it is merely a case study for a process informed by complex phenomena and its potential implications in Architecture.
