BioMat Pavillon 2018 FLEXIBLE FORMS
Der Forschungspavillon umfasste eien Fläche von ca. 55 m2 und ein Innenvolumen von ca. 120 m3 mit einer Spannweite von 9,5 m und einer Höhe von 3,6 m. Er wurde im Sommer 2018 auf dem Campus Stadtmitte der Universität Stuttgart aus Bioverbundwerkstoff-Sandwichelementen errichtet. Die doppelt gekrümmte, parametrisch segmentierte Schale wurde von drei gekrümmten Brettschichtbindern getragen. Die Geometrie der Schale ähnelte einem 3D-Gewebe, in dem die gebogenen Bio-Verbundelemente im dreidimensionalen Raum in alle Richtungen verbunden waren.
