This gorgeous wall was actually built by a robot named R-O-B. Designed by Swiss architects Gramazio and Kohler, R-O-B is set to build another wall in New York later this month.
Over a period of four weeks, a structural brick wall called Pike Loop will be constructed on Pike Street in New York, in full public view. Construction will commence on September 29.
Could R-O-B signal the end to whistling construction workers?
Implications - I don't think so. Whistling construction workers are such a common trope of movies, television and novels that I don't think people in the art world would feel comfortable living in a world where it didn't happen. Chances are, they'd train the robot to do it. If only for comedic effect.
