The ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medien (Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe), which is a renowned well-known culture and arts center in Germany had held the Karlsruher Forum 2020 on Wednesday the 14th of October 2020 with the topic of “New materials for a new world for our future” (Bioal¬che¬mie – unsere Zukunft? Neue Materia¬lien für eine neue Welt) . Prof. Hanaa Dahy has held an introductory lecture in this event with the title: Gold Straw replaces Plastic!
This radio interview discussed opportunities towards future sustainable architecture both in Germany and globally and how BioMat Department at ITKE is supporting that along with all partners and colleagues of the University of Stuttgart and in Stuttgart region.
The interview was moderated by Mr. Robin Christoph Knapp who interviewed Prof. Hanaa Dahy and the discussion covered many interesting developments and ideas linked with sustainability in the building sector and the adaptation of similar developments from other industrial fields including electronics, automotive, textile & material engineering, aircraft design engineering, and others.
The Mock-up demonstrates a vision for modular sustainable architecture, where annually-renewable biomaterials are digitally additively-fabricated to produce minimal surface modular units, which are versatile and reusable in diverse geometric constellations.
The new book FABRICATE 2020: Making Resilient Architecture features also two pavilions realized by BioMat/ITKE group in 2019 and 2018, exploring the use of various biocomposite materials in structural applications.
