Overview of Seminars

The seminar focuses on the investigation, abstraction and transfer of biological strategies into technical applications. Students will work in interdisciplinary teams to investigate biological role models within a bottom up process and will be searching for solution strategies towards specific aspects by exploring biological role models within a top down process. Computational simulation and analysis tools are used to find model representations for biologic processes and investigate functional principles.

 

Evolutionary processes in nature generated manifold solutions in respond to environmental and performative demands, where various functional and form generative aspects have to be integrated in a coherent system. While a number of those aspects can be easily transferred to architectural aspects, natural organisms are working radically different from today’s construction and planning practice. While nature evolved highly energy and material efficient solutions, based on geometrical and material diff erentiation, today’s construction industry and design processes are mostly based on the standardization of elements and the addition of mono functional subsystems. Recent developments of computaional design and digital fabrication processes have initiated a fundamental paradigm shift from industrial
production of standardized elements towards an integrated design processes. This development opens up the possibilities to create architectural systems which are characterized by multifunctional geometrically differentiated structures, which can match the capacity of nature’s performative morphologies, and thereby enables us to transfer functional principles of natural organisms into architectural applications.

Master Seminar

The seminar focuses on the interplay between geometry and structural behaviour of different structural types categorised with respect to the load bearing mechanism. In particular on form-active and surface-active structures. Beginning with an introduction from ancient to the newest form-finding approaches a holistic overview is provided.

First experimental approaches are used to determine
the shape with respect to a certain initially wanted structural state. Followed by the detailed introduction of the latest numerical form-finding methods. With the aid of digital modelling software and scripting tools. An overview of the mathematical background is provided to enable the participants to understand and evaluate of the applicability and limits of each method.

The state-of-the-art form-finding methods are put to use on practical examples where form and structural states are investigated and manipulated. The detailing and the
realization of the designed systems are discussed.

Prerequisites

Rhinoceros skills. The seminar is taught in English. The students should be familiar with the architectural possibilities of membrane and shell structures in order to use them in their design projects.

Master Seminar

Material and Structure is a Seminar aiming to give the opportunity to future architects to deal with materials, design and fabrication with a different scope. The materiality, knowledge and awareness of materials are more or less left to the practice phase, where they are simplified and usually refer to already known catalogues and a material choice may not be optimal or no longer up-to-date.

The seminar covers a wide range of materials going from traditional materials, i.e. concrete, steel, wood and glass, to nowadays lightweight materials, i.e. bio-based materials and composites, textiles and polymers or smart and responsive materials. Furthermore, understanding of the properties, characteristics and structural behavior of these materials and related knowledge of compounds, layered elements as well as fibre reinforcement possibilities shall allow proper and intentional usage in architectural and structural applications.

A number of concepts of applying these materials in different design/structural contexts will be tackled in details by an experimental approach. The students will test their knowledge through designing and producing a physical prototype in the form of a stool (1:1).

Master  and Bachelor Seminar

 

Die großen Gebiet des Betonbau werden in straffer Form vorgestellt. Behandelt werden die Themenkreise Materialien und Tragverhalten des Stahlbetonbaus, Tragkonstruktionen und Tragglieder aus Stahlbeton sowie Planung und Herstellung von Bauwerken aus Beton.

Dabei werden die eigentlichnen Berechnungen, Bemessungen und konstruktiven Details nur soweit vertieft, wie dies durch das Verständnis für den Baustoff Beton und seine Verwendung, das Überschauen der Anwendungsmöglichkeiten und die Zusammenarbeit mit dem Ingenieur erforderlich ist.

Breiten Raum nehmen neben der Betrachtung der Materialeigenschaften, wie Festigkeit, Verformungsverhalten und Oberflächenbeschaffenheit die Funktionsweise und die Anwendungsgebiete der Tragelemente Platten, Balken, Wände und Stützen ein.

Ergänzend werden praktische Methoden für die Planung und Ausführung von Bauwerken aus Beton betrachtet.
