The Revolution Door is a modified revolving door comprised of three parts - a redesigned central core replacing that of any existing or new revolving door, a mechanical/electrical system that harnesses human energy and redistributes electricity to an output, and an output device that maps the harnessed energy. By mechanically harvesting a negligible amount of human energy and converting it to a tangible display through the use of a generator, the Revolution Door will directly communicate a single person's contribution to an energy cycle possible through the metabolic relationship between people, technology, and architecture.

Casa Segura is a sustainable and Internet-enabled shelter to be deployed in the Sonoran desert. This prototype is intended to explore the possibility of creating life-saving beacons in an otherwise hostile landscape, enabling private property owners to help foster a humane border and creating a platform for understanding the motivations and stories of the thousands of migrants who make this dangerous trek through the desert. For this project Robert will collaborate with architects Paola Sanguinetti and Blake Goble, as well as emerging artist Ryan Moran
