BE-AM labs @ Tu darmstadt : The ISM+D Brick lab

The ISMD Brick lab is realizing research projects in the 3d-clay printing of real scale free-form bricks for the use in building environments. Focus is currently the printing technology, the extrusion process and the final processing. Further development of 3d clay printing technique will focus on dimension, precision, speed and usable materials. Key equipment: ABBContinue reading “BE-AM labs @ Tu darmstadt : The ISM+D Brick lab”

The Digital Design Unit Lab | DDU

COLLABORATIVE DESIGN: DDU researches forms of collaboration between architects and robots both in the design studio and on the construction site. COMBINATORIAL DESIGN: Using computational design tools and digital fabrication DDU revisits modular design in architecture with the promise of reusable and affordable buildings. DESIGN THROUGH GAMING: DDU explores how games can be used as design environments where architectural decisions are made collectively by architects, players and algorithms. FORMWORK DESIGN: DDU’s work on rotoformed concrete pushes forward design processes for softContinue reading “The Digital Design Unit Lab | DDU”
