The Greylands website invites people to draw
architectural plans for polluted land of the LeBretton
Flats in Ottawa, Canada.
The billboard of KIT’s housing development company
called ‘Borderline Developments’ is set
up on the Greylands site.
The robot is driven via GPS to draw out the architectural
plans in real time and real size. It lays a 3-inch line
of lime on the ground.
Inside the porta-cabin office, there are employees who
oversee the project and explain what is happening to
people who drop in.

The plans it drew out were from unsolicited participants
on the Internet.
Drawings are sent from the website to a robot on the
LeBretton Flats via GPS. This is an aerial image of
the robots drawings.
A 'Borderline Developments' porta-cabin is also set
up to house the project on-site. The robot is stored
in here at night.
Coloured in the company colours, the robot resembles
a seated lawn mower familiar to many Canadian home owners.
A range of company merchandise including T-Shirts, keychains,
mousepads, stickers and mugs is produced and distributed.
1.5 years of preparation went into developing Greylands.
The robotic drawing stage was maintained for a 2-week
