SCI-Arc Robot House Fellows: where We are

Friday, April 13, 1pm
W.M. Keck Lecture Hall

Intro by Peter Testa

A culmination of SCI-Arc's 2011-12 Fellows design and research work within the Robot House, this lecture introduces the major research topics addressed by fellows during their past two terms at SCI-Arc, including synchronous robotics and complex coordination between movement, end arm tooling, and material agency in space.

SCI-Arc's 2011-12 Robot House Fellows are Brandon Kruysman and Jonathan Proto. Together, they recently founded Kruysman-Proto, Los Angeles.

Brandon Kruysman holds a Master of Architecture from SCI-Arc and a Bachelor of Architecture from Philadelphia University, while also studying abroad in Copenhagen. Kruysman has had extensive experience in computational design and coded assemblies, having previously worked for Point b Design in Philadelphia and THEVERYMANY in New York. In addition, Kruysman has been the lead developer of a custom software plug-in called esperant.0, which utilizes the animation software Maya as a control model for multi-agent robotic fabrication.

Jonathan Proto holds a Master of Architecture from SCI-Arc and a Bachelor of Architecture from Philadelphia University, while also studying abroad in Copenhagen. Proto leads the studio's exploration of custom machine tooling through a variety of digital and analog methods of making. He has honed his craft while working in the offices of Point b Design in Philadelphia and THEVERYMANY in New York, where he oversaw the execution of complex building components from conception through installation.
