Bend&Block

Bend&Block

 

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...

CONTROLLED ACTIVE BENDING STRUCTURES

“The form is a system which organises itself in the presences of both internal and external forces and these organizations can shape patterns traced through mathematical rules.”
D’ Arcy Thompson

In this framework, this 5-days course focuses on the creation of ...

Blumer Lehmann secondment

 

 

 

 

 

The last months I have been working on scaling up the micro-scalar (1 dm) dynamic behavior of wood veneer into macroscalar dynamic wooden structures (10m) exploring controlled bending-active systems.
From the 6th till the 18th of November  I conducted my secondment in Blumer Lehman in ...
