Hybrid Tower (2016)

Tower_night_07 Traditional thinking in architecture and engineering alike is to understand the built environment as static. Build structures resist changes in the environment through stiffness. ‘Hybrid Tower’ asks, what an architecture could be, that is soft and gives in to forces in a controlled yet way. An architecture that embraces the idea of resilience and adaptation.

‘Hybrid Tower’ is an integrated hybrid structure – made from only two components: Bend GFRP rods and custom-made CNC knit. The unique combination of these two materials creates a very light and yet stiff structure, which balances wind and other external forces through an interdependent combination of compression and tension elements. The structure is extremely light and easy to assemble, but yet strong enough to withstand a 3 month outdoor installation on the world cultural heritage side of the central square of Guimaraes/Portugal: Largo do Toural.

The tower was developed in an interdisciplinary collaboration between architects (CITA, Copenhagen) , structural- and textile-engineers (KET, Berlin, Fibrenamics, Guimaraes), material testing specialists (Duisburger…..) and the knitting company AFF (A. Ferreira & Filhos). Together they developed materials and design and fabrication processes, which allowed using knit as structural element in a previously unprecedented scale. The collaboration opens new avenues for textile as building material.

Lace Wall (2016)

Generative Cable Networks For Active Bending Structures

Lace Wall

Lace Wall explores hybrid structures that combine elements in tension and compression. Here two elements of low stiffness – the fibreglass beam and the cable network – are combined to create one whole of high stiffness. The element is form active shaped by the interdependency between the elements that restrain each other.

Complex Modelling Research Exhibition (03.09 – 11.12.2016)

daytwo_01-83596-cropped
CITA is exhibiting the final three demonstrators of the Complex Modelling project in a research exhibition in Copenhagen from 3. September – 11. December 2016.

The Complex Modelling research exhibition explores new design strategies for architectural construction. Digital design and fabrication and the integration of simulation into our design tools are enabling new ways of using materials and building. The research exhibition presents results from CITA’s latest research into air-inflated membranes, hybrid structures combining tension and compression based elements and into the strategic corrugation of steel plates using robotic fabrication. The exhibition presents the final three digital-material experiments that make up this research.

2016_CM_RE_EINVITEv2F_blank Complex Modelling is a Sapere Aude Advanced Research project granted by The Danish Council for Independent Research and undertaken by CITA: the Centre for IT and Architecture at KADK. It investigates the infrastructures of our design models. By questioning the tools for integrating information across the expanded digital design chain, the project asks how to support feedback between different scales of design engagement moving from material design, across design, simulation and analysis to specification and fabrication.

Learning (machine) Learning (2016)

CM_machineLearningPamphletCover

The complex modelling workshop and symposium Crossing Into Physical Realms with Collaborative & Interactive Machine Learning is a three day event exploring and discussing machine learning methods, their application within architecture and the impact of this computational paradigm will have on the ways physical artifacts and spaces are designed, fabricated and behave. The event is structured around a two-day workshop and a one day seminar drawing together key researchers form the fields of architecture, evolutionary robotics, computer science and artificial intelligence. The workshop provides an opportunity for participants to engage with machine learning in a design-led and hands-on way, and the symposium provides an opportunity to discuss, reflect and gain insight from cutting-edge research and practices engaging with machine learning.

 

CM_MLW_RobertVierlinger

The morning session of this first workshop day has provided a theoretical grounding in machine learning concepts, methods of problem representation (direct and in-direct), principle and hybrid paradigms (Evolutionary Computation, Artificial Neural Networks, NeuroEvolution of Augmenting Topologies (NEAT), Compositional Pattern Producing Networks (CPPN) and HyperNEAT), algorithm architecture and application realms. This was delivered by Sebastian Risi (ITU). The afternoon session was led by Robert Vierlinger (University of Applied Arts Vienna and Bollinger+Grohmann) who provided a whistlestop tour of the new Octopus plugin for Grasshopper. Workshop participants followed a series of introductory design exercises using CPPNs – warming up for the design exercise of Day 2 which will see machine learning informed designs fabricated using CNC milling…

Stressed Skins (2015)

stressedSkins_CF071400

Stressed Skins explores how very thin, easily bent metal sheet can become a strong but lightweight structure. Architects use thin metal sheets as cladding panels to provide integrated enclosure, structure and form. Because loads vary over such a building system, performance requirements vary, and customized load-adapted panel designs could mean significant efficiencies of material use and possible reductions for supporting structural systems.

This project develops workflows and methods to support customised design and fabrication using Incremental Sheet Forming (ISF).  These include the prediction of changes in material properties such as thinning and work hardening, the automated generation of load adapted rigidisation geometries, the prediction of overall structural behavior, and the automated generation of fabrication information. A specific concern is the development of adaptive mesh-based methods as a means to communicate information about design, material properties and performance across scales.
