BioMat B.Sc. 2018: Arzum Coban, Victoria Ivanova
The research pavilion was inspired by Diatoms. Diatoms are a unicellular type of Phytoplankton. Although they are unicellular, they can form colonies in the shapes of filaments or ribbons.
On the 15thof August 2018, the official opening took place of the first experimental pavilion, realized by the department of Biobased Materials and Material Cycles in Architecture (BioMat), located at the Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE) in the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning, University of Stuttgart.
BioMat was presenting from 6th to 8th November 2018 at COMPOSITES EUROPE 2018
COMPOSITES EUROPE is the foremost trade fair and industry forum for all professions that are linked with composites as well as their corresponding technologies and applications.
BioMat pavilion was featured in the local news (Stuttgater Zeitung/ Stuttgart Nachrichten) as well as in the “Architekturblatt”, the German online architecture magazine.
