M.Sc. ITECH: Integrative Technologies and Architectural Design Research
This major new exhibition at the Vitra Design Museum features two ITKE projects. The exhibition considers the increasing involvement of robotics as part of human life, with these projects by ITKE/ICD demonstrating the potential of robotically fabricated FRP structures for future building systems. The exhibition is made possible through the involvement of MAK Vienna and Design Museum Gent and opened on 10.02.17 at 6pm.
This pilot installation serves the research of the active reduction potential of moss against particulates. This is a common project of ITKE and IFK, University of Stuttgart and Staatliches Naturkunde Museum Stuttgart (SMNS).
