Melike Altınışık Architects (MMA) recently won an international competition to design the world’s first museum dedicated to robot science in Seoul, South Korea. The competition, hosted by The Seoul Metropolitan Government, called for ideas to design a museum that would support public education in robotics and increase the public knowledge and interest in robots.

MMA’s design will not only exhibit robots, but the museum’s construction will act as its first exhibition. Robots will be in charge of manufacturing and construction services. As the robots begin construction on site in early 2020, passersby will be able to witness the science, technology, and innovation of robots in action. Robots will be in charge of jobs such as molding, welding, and polishing metal plates for the museum’s façade, and 3D printing concrete.
