Why are walls always straight? Why does it cost so much to build them? And why do big construction projects so often run late? Construction has always been a conservative industry, used to doing things how they have always been done.

Architects have always been limited by what their builders can actually make. But if robots were doing the building, all sorts of new possibilities open up.
