As a central part of the BW-I and Leichtbau BW exhibition stand, a spatial installation was designed by the Institute for Computational Design (ICD) and the Institute for Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE) to communicate the exhibitions emphasize on the regions competence in lightweight and material efficient construction in research and industry.
The structure was fabricated in collaboration with the Institute of Aircraft Design (IFB) and represents the idea of lightweight construction through the use of innovative computational design and digital fabrication methods resulting in structurally high performant geometries and the innovative use of lightweight materials. Communication zones with different characters are defined through a curved semi-transparent wall. The higher part of the installation subdivides the communication space into smaller segments and achieves visibility from the distance, while a connected communication zone is created through the integration of a bar in the lower part of the installation.
The carbon fibre layout is generated based on a structural topology optimization, machine constraints and requirements of the lamination process. The fibre layout was translated into machine paths for Tailored fibre placement (TFP). This method sews carbon fibre rovings onto a glass fibre fabric by guiding a cnc controlled frame along the sewing and fibre placement head. Such a process allows very precise control of fibre arrangements. The stitched patches were used as differentiated carbon fibre reinforcement for thin and translucent GFK panels.
Fabrication is now finished and the structure is ready for setup at the Hannover Fair.
The Hannover Fair will be opened on April 7th. You can find our structure in Hall 6 on Stand D30.
