The computational bamboo installation was built in July 2018 as part of the IAAC Global Summer School in Quito, Ecuador. The structure is constructed from bending-active bamboo laths and rods and will be showcased for 3 months at the Museum of Interactive Science in Quito. The workshop, which resulted in this demonstrator, combined natural local traditional building materials with new computational methods for design combined with traditional fabrication. The workshop was led by two ITKE researchers, Evy Slabbinck and Seiichi Suzuki.
Innochain announces the international conference Expanding information modelling for a new material age. It will take place in Copenhagen on 8.-9. November 2018 at the Danish Architecture Centre in the new Blox building by OMA. The conference is organised in collaboration with the Danish
Bend&Block is a material system whose deformation depends on internal geometrical configurations. The aim is to create a structural system that is flexible when it is flat and stiff when it is deformed. This way, curved elements can be easily formed from flat components which bend and block...
We are happy to present the Innochain exhibition PRACTICE FUTURES: BUILDING DESIGN FOR A NEW MATERIAL AGE at KADK in Copenhagen.
The exhibition showcases the results of the 15 Innochain PhD projects from 6 institutions across Europe. With a strong industry focus, the PhDs are undertaken in...
The BAT_02 is in the last steps of the design phase and starts to have its final equilibrium-shape. We are happy to announce that next to the collaboration with Foster + Partners, we have the sponsorship and knowledge of Tesler + Mendelovitch, who are masters in combining wood veneer with textiles. Have a closer look at the ‘Capitonnage’ (double curvature) effect of the wood veneer.
