Computational bamboo installation

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.

CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK FOR ANALYZING AND DESIGNING BENDING-ACTIVE TENSILE HYBRID STRUCTURES

CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK FOR ANALYZING AND DESIGNING BENDING-ACTIVE TENSILE HYBRID STRUCTURES

This paper investigates and demonstrates the structural and architectural potentials of torsion in plate elements for bending-active tensile structures and evaluates the limits to which torsion can be employed in plate-hybrid structures. Bending‐active tensile structures are a novel typology of lightweight structures utilizing integrated bending-active elements as support for a membrane structure.
