BAT_02 – Adaptive hybrid bending-active tensile meeting room – in collaboration with Seiichi Suzuki and Foster + Partners
AUTHOR: Angelos Chronis
Despite the continuous development of performance simulation tools, their seamless integration in the design process is still a challenge. One area that has remained largely unexplored is computational fluid dynamics (CFD). CFD simulations have a large variety of...
Current practice uses digital fabrication technologies to optimise standardised fabrication processes. Often accompanied by trial-and-error approaches, the limits of digital fabrication methods are quickly reached without a thorough understanding of the strength and limits of the forming processes and the materials.
