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...

INDUSTRIAL PARTNERS: Str.ucture + Foster and Partners
The involvement of machine intelligence carries the process of design into a new association between two species which continuously influence each other during the search for an ideal design...
Industrial Partners: Blumer Lehmann, White. The ability to simulate material performance, parametrising and calculating material properties as design drivers present new perspectives in structural and material thinking. By understanding materials not as static or inanimate, but as engaged by complex behaviours, material performance is regarded as one of the richest sources of innovation. New structural paradigms are emerging that integrate material performance such as active bending.
