This Barn Was Built With Help From an Architecturally Savvy Robot

It's nice that they're helping us build some barns before they take over the world

Robots are, of course, going to take over the world, but while they bide their time it's pretty nice that some of them have agreed to help us build barns. This barn in Dorset, England was constructed with 25 forked beech branches, which were harvested from the surrounding trees, and which the robot then 3D scanned and milled to form the interlinking connections. The robot's masters (soon to be its servants) are a team of five students from the AA's Design & Make course.
