Appreciation towards Matter Design for providing the following description:

对于当代建筑实践而言,远古巨石结构的运输和堆放似乎已经成为了某种神秘的知识。Walking Assembly重新挖掘了这种古老知识的潜能,旨在为未来的建筑装配和运输提供有用的参照。如果说砖块是为单手装配而设计的材料,那么巨大的混凝土砌块单元(CMU)就是为两个人而准备的:它颠覆了尺度与人类身体之间的从属关系。

The mysterious knowledge surrounding the transportation and placement of megalithic structures of the past eludes contemporary building practices. Walking Assembly re-introduces the potentials of that ancient knowledge to better inform the transportation and assembly of future architectures. If a brick is designed for a single hand, and a concrete masonry unit (CMU) is designed for two, these massive masonry units (MMU) unshackle the dependency between size and the human body.

在该项目中,关于运输和装配的“智慧”被融入到构件本身:它需要通过人亲自去将这些巨大的混凝土单元移动到正确的位置,原本需要依赖起重机或重型机械安装的结构,现在只需要通过花费少许力气就可以进行智能的组装和拆卸。装置所使用的是密度不均的混凝土,能够精确地控制砌块的重心,使其稳定且便于移动,从而为无起重设备的装配提供了可能性。与此同时,施工现场也仿佛变成了一个有趣的游戏场地。

Intelligence of transportation and assembly is designed into the elements themselves, liberating humans to guide these colossal concrete elements into place. Structures that would otherwise rely on cranes or heavy equipment can now be intelligently assembled and disassembled with little energy. By using variable density concrete, the center of mass of the object is calibrated precisely to control the stable, but easy motion of the elements. This ensures that these massive elements successfully walk and assemble into place, creating the possibility for a crane-less tilt up construction method and turning our building sites into spectacles of play.
