Golem – Morphology and Material in Kinetic Structures

Created by Juncheng Chen, Siyuan Jing and Lydia Zhou at the Bartlett School of Architecture (Interactive Architecture Lab), this project explores possibilities in mobile structures by investigating various strategies for locomotion.

Inspired by Theo Jansen’s mechanism designed for walking movements, the project began with investigation into a structure of a machine named Golem, a lightweight, low-cost and sustainable mobile structure, using air as the main energy input. The team developed an air muscle actuator to generate movements of the robot, experimented with different designs from tensegrity structure to biomorphic mechanism.
