A twisting brick wall built by a robot was the central feature of the Swiss Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale in 2008. Animated slogans and talking heads appeared to glow from the surface of the brown bricks, telling stories and asking questions about Swiss design research, while a silent film followed the life of the industrial robot who built the wall.

Commissioned by the Swiss Federal Office of Culture. Curated by Reto Geiser. Produced by Maris Mezulis Studio in collaboration with Reto Geiser and Angelus Eisinger. Exhibited at the Swiss Pavilion for the 11th Venice Architecture Biennale, 2008.
