LightPRO Shell is a winner of the Green Concept Awards 2022

May 18, 2022 / Jun. Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hanaa Dahy (BioMat)

LightPRO Shell (BioMat Pavilion 2021) was developed by BioMat team and students in summer semester 2021 and is linked to the LeichPRO research project.

The LightPRO Shell Pavilion is an active-bending structure made of natural fibre bio-composite profiles. It is a 10-meter span canopy that demonstrates the capabilities of a newly developed material: ‘bamboo-like’ profiles made of natural flax and hemp fibres. The profiles are completely biodegradable and can be used in a variety of structural applications or ephemeral structures. This innovative structure is demonstrating a sustainability approach towards future architecture. Its purpose is to introduce alternative sustainable materials for structural applications to the market.
