ADAPABLE MATERIAL Instructor year 4

Ass. Prof Paul Nicholas


Adaptable Material This project aims to investigate in the discrete assembly of an adaptable, intelligent composite material. Whereas the kinetic actuators need to be understood as discrete elements within a system. The project questions the traditional way of thinking about architecture as rigid and non-deformable objects. Therefore, it explores the capacities of an adaptable and programmable material, which can be actuated and becomes a shape-changing element within a system.

BACHELOR THESIS

SPACEPORT X Instructor

year 3

PROF. MARJAN COLLETTI PAVLOS FEREOS MARIOS TSILIAKOS


SPACESHIP ARCHITECTURE BRIEF The analysis of make-belief drawings and models of Sci-Fispaceships, space-stations, extra-terrestrial worlds and anything that can be perceived as architecture, always leaves architects in absence of interior information. Interior scenes are most of the time filmed on separately designed sets (or digital sets) which are made in a way to correlate the ‚atmosphere‘ of the exterior. However, they rarely relate to what architects would expect from interior programs vs. exterior facade systems. The aim of this project is to investigate in this discrepancy, found in Sci-Fi architecture and analyse, textures, light situations, patterns and material as well as program understanding.

TEAM: VERENA RAUH, NADINE STADELMANN


Spaceport X is a proposal for a spaceport situated inside of the riverbed Inn. The still small town will, in the near future, develop to a main centre for space-travel, taking tourists through the gaseous planet Jupiter. A journey to the gas giant requires numerous preparation states, not only for the tourists, but also for the spaceships. X meets all the training necessities and offers a program containing a preparation centre, a spaceship technology and research department, a luxury hotel and living area as well as take-off platform and promotion area, in form of a museum.

natural light sources and circulation systems. The enormous massive is divided on multiple scales. The first one cuts the whole into four different main areas. The dividing areas can be understood as two ‘cutting elements’, which act as passage areas, of whom one is accommodating a high speed electromagnetic train whereas the second one the buildings main human passenger-circulation. These circulation systems however, shouldn’t be described as separating elements, but rather more as connection zones in between the massive parts.

The design of the spaceport is influenced by the different aggregate states of the visited planet, generated through pressure and temperature difference. In multitudinous areas, the massive volume seems to be dissolving, giving space to

On a secondary level, the space can be understood as an assembly of a finite number of elements. Which compose the architectural program varying in size and use.

SPACESHIP ARCHITECTURE TERM I During the first term of our Bachelor Thesis Year, the task consisted in analysing and redesigning floorplans, interiors and spaces. We investigated in the development of pattern creating methods. Cutting-edge computational definitions have been used to construct 3D models and CAD/CAM fabrication systems have been explored to build large physical models. Understanding of the Surface Pattern

Pneumatic elements as shape giving agents, Initial tests

FILIGREE A HABITAT FOR BUTTERFLIES BRIEF

UNDER PRESSURE is a panelised shell, assembled from epoxy resin and glass fibre modules. The project investigates in finding a filigree, lightweight, but at the same time robust construction method. A mass-customization method has been developed in order to reduce fabrication time and represent a sustainable and easy to assemble and production procedure. A 1m2 Latex sandwich is used as formwork for the modules and an adjustable frame makes various polygonal modules possible. 1m2 Latex sandwich for 1:1 Scale Modules TEAM: VERENA RAUH, PHILIPP SCHWADERER, DAVID CHRISTIAN

A CITY FOR NOBODY PROF. PETER TRUMMER CYNTHIA SANCHEZ MORALES

Instructor

year 2


ZOMBIE URBANISM BRIEF

Zombie Urbanism in this case should be understood as a city which is not inhabited by human beings. Placed in the middle of Harlem-Manhattan, it looks like it is completely integrated in between the square grid. However the closer you look, the stranger the appearance becomes. A huge monster formed out of building parts looms out of the ground and creates a massive crater.

A CITY FOR NOBODY is operating as a bank. People who want to deposit their money, can buy an area of the building, however, it is impossible to accommodate people in it. They are allowed to visit the part they have purchased, wherefore, a complex system of staircases and elevators form the buildin‘s interior. TEAM: DOMINIK SCHOECH

DISCRETE ASSEMBLIES Instructor

Gilles Retsin


Discrete Assemblies This workshop focused on the understanding of the object as a part to part and part to object1 - based system. Discretized architectural objects and digital, discrete units have been created. Our team developed a system, which does not only change according to a certain value ( here a vector) but also looks at how the neighbouring voxels are behaving and on the position of this voxel in the whole system. 1

Material and different pattern experiments

Digital Fabrication Workshop During this one week workshop digital fabrication methods have been explored. Our method included the use of the 6-axis robotical arm to 3D print a material shaping pattern on the elastic textile. The pattern was generated from a solar analysis of the light situation in Copenhagen. For this we used Ladybug for grasshopper and developed a method, which discretizes the solar pattern into a useful shading element, allowing the sun to enter an interior only during a certain time of the day.

Assembly of Formwork without additional material


Robotical Foamcutting The aim of this class was to develop a design as well as a fabrication method. We investigated a modular system, which can be assembled without the addition of a secondary material and which tries to minimize the waste production, during the fabrication process.

Robotic fibre-reinforced-concrete Printing The aim of this class was to develop a design for an architectural element , which creates a link between textile and concrete. The composite in our method is created by adding glass fibre strings next to the concrete printing nozzle and to wrap it around the printed layers by following the concrete path. For this however, the concrete shape would have to be convex in every step. In order to eliminate this problem, a small needle, which can swap sides is introduced to the tool. This needle can arrange the fibres in a way, that they follow the path on the interior on concave corners and from the outside on convex corners. TEAM: Verena Rauh
