Bending Active Struc­tures
Dig Des Fab 18

Semi­nar ‚Digi­tal Design and Full Scale Fabri­ca­tion’ (Dig Des Fab) is taught at Univer­sity of Applied Arts in Vienna, Insti­tute of Archi­tec­ture, Depart­ment of Struc­tu­ral Design during Winter Semes­ter 2018/2019.

Active-bending is an effi­ci­ent construc­tion tech­ni­que for temporary, free-form struc­tures which has been used since anti­quity. This method exploits the elastic bending of thin elements in order to create curved forms. The semi­nar was based on a rese­arch deve­lo­ped within the univer­sity, propo­sing an al­ter­na­tive active-bending system in which the stif­fen­er­s are embed­ded in the buil­ding compon­ents ­them­sel­ves by intro­du­cing geome­try cons­traints. Thus, an inde­pen­dent rela­tion between the maxi­mum ­cur­vat­ure and the stiff­ness is achie­ved and the resul­ting system faci­li­ta­tes the erec­tion and reusa­bi­lity of temporary structures.
