The Landesgartenschau Exhibition Hall in Germany was built using robotics controlled by the Institute for Computational Design. The resulting structure looks similar to a cocoon, or even a peanut depending on how one looks at it.

The material used to build the piece was made from robotics, which resulted in the lightweight timber used to put the entire structure together. The best part about this approach is how sustainable he wood actually is. Because it was tested and experimented with, much of it is very sustainable and easy to recreate.

According to The Contemporist, "the project demonstrates the new opportunities that arise from the integration of computational design, simulation and fabrication methods for performative and resource efficient constructions made from the locally available and renewable resource wood." Hopefully these experiments will continue in the future.
