This week Efilena Baseta visited TU Graz as a jury member of the midterm presentation of the studio ”Break it till you Make it” led by Urs Hirschberg. The students focus on experimenting on various materialities of wood with the final goal of building an 1:1 info point. After the reviews...
The last months I have been working on scaling up the micro-scalar (1 dm) dynamic behaviour of wood veneer into macroscalar dynamic wooden structures (10m) exploring active bending techniques.
From the 6th till the 18th of November I conducted my secondment in Blumer Lehman in...
This post is somewhat late, but taking advantage of the new Innochain data repository, here is the paper presented at CICE 2016 by James Solly (ESR08) on behalf of his co-authors Professor Jan Knippers and researchers Valentin Koslowski and Timo Fildhuth.
James (ESR08) and Sam (ESR12) both attended the Acadia 2017 “Disciplines and Disruption” Conference at MIT in Boston, 2nd-4th November 2017.
During the conference, our colleagues from the ICD (Institute of Computational Design and Construction) presented the paper:
In order to minimize the amount of cement involved in concrete constructions, the concrete industry today chooses to reduce the share of cement in the total mass of concrete. This approach leads to lower mechanical properties of concrete, resulting in thicker floor slabs and massive beams.
The Monolithic Earthen Shells project recieves the ACADIA Autodesk 2017 award for Emerging research.
Authors: Stephanie Chaltiel and Maite Bravo are very honoured to recieve the prize.
