Archipelago Architectures

Organized by two schools of the HES⁠-⁠SO University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland (Geneva)—HEAD, Geneva School of Art and Design and HEPIA, Geneva School of Engineering, Architecture and Landscape—Archipelago: Architectures for the Multiverse is the first edition of a digitally-anchored international event arising from a partnership between three departments—architecture, interior architecture and landscape architecture—that will be broadcast from May 6 to 8 in Geneva.

In anticipation of Archipelago, their team spoke with Andrea Anner and Thibault Brevet of AATB (Practice for Non-Industrial Robotics), who ran a workshop at HEAD in late February entitled ‘Artificial Nutrition’. Their practice experiments with industrial robotic systems and uses tools such as robotic arms to explore Human-Machine interactions through kinetic and interactive situations. Andrea and Thibault’s collaboration began during their diploma studies, as they graduated in 2012 with graphic design degrees, and the duo is currently based in Marseille.
