The 70-foot Arroyo Bridge began life as a speculative project in a University of Southern California design-build studio, headed by lead researcher R Scott Mitchell.

It is designed as an intricate web of steel tubing, with a layered structure inspired by leaf veins and tree branches.

The bridge's structure was the result of a challenge that saw 13 undergraduate students tasked with designing a pedestrian bridge using parametric design tools...

Collaborative robotics combines the precision of robotics with human creativity and adaptability.
