New Cluster of Excellence: Integrative Computational Design and Construction for Architecture

Neues Exzellenzcluster

Wir freuen uns, den Erfolg unseres Exzellenzclusterantrags „Integrative Computational Design and Construction for Architecture (IntCDC)“ in der Finalrunde der Deutschen Exzellenzstrategie bekannt zu geben. Ziel der Exzellenzstrategie ist es, den Forschungsstandort Deutschland langfristig zu stärken und seine internationale Wettbewerbsfähigkeit weiter zu verbessern. Ein Exzellenzcluster ist die bedeutendste und umfangreichste Förderung der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft.

The Fibre Facade Prototype is a new building component demonstrator created for the Innochain Network Exhibition “Practice Futures: Building Design for a New Material Age” which opened on the 31st of August at KADK in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The prototype was developed in collaboration between the ITKE, University of Stuttgart and FibR GmbH as the final product of their Innochain Industry Partnership. It consists of eight unique CFRP (carbon fibre reinforced polymer) frames that were fabricated by coreless filament winding and support eight planar polycarbonate panes in unique positions and orientations.


FLEXIBLE FORMS Holz- und Biokomposit-Forschungspavillon

BioMat @ Hannover Messe 2018

Die BioMat Forschungsabteilung am ITKE präsentiert vom 23.-27. April ihre Arbeiten auf der Hannover Messe 2018, der weltgrößten Messe für Industrie, Investitionsgüter, Forschung und Innovation. An einem gemeinsamen Stand mit der Universität Stuttgart und dem Land Baden-Württemberg werden neue nachhaltige Materialentwicklungen sowie aktuelle Projekte aus Forschung und Lehre gezeigt.


Schalenbauwerke für die Bundesgartenschau Heilbronn 2019

Innovative pavilion buildings for the Bundesgartenschau Heilbronn 2019
Institute for Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE) – Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jan Knippers
Institute for Computational Design and Construction (ICD) – Prof. Achim Menges
University of Stuttgart – Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning

The Institute for Computational Design and Construction (ICD) and the Institute for Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE) at the University of Stuttgart are developing two highly innovative, biologically inspired pavilions for the 2019 Bundesgartenschau in Heilbronn. Both are globally unique, light-weight structures that are fully computationally designed and robotically fabricated. The two pavilions embody and express the strength of innovation typical for the State of Baden-Württemberg, which has been an internationally recognized centre for lightweight constructions, biomimetics, and the development of digital technologies in architecture for several decades. By acting as the main funding body, the state will play a prominent role in the exhibition.


ICD/ITKE Research Pavilion 2013/14 at the Design Society in Shenzhen, China

Inaugural Exhibition of the Design Society, Shenzhen, 2017

The ICD/ITKE Research Pavilion 2013/14 is now on display as part of the exhibition “Minding the Digital” organized by the Design Society Shenzhen. The project is part of a successful series of research pavilions which showcase the potential of novel design, simulation and fabrication processes in architecture. The project was planned and constructed within one and a half years by students and researchers within a multi-disciplinary team of biologists, paleontologists, architects and engineers.


ICD/ITKE Research Pavilion 2016-2017 wird bei ACADIA 2017 vorgestellt
