Year: 2019

BioMat Exhibition 2019

The exhibition is a collection of the latest research and student projects, which connect the fields of design, sustainable materials developments, biomimetics, and smart systems in architecture. New materiality has been evolved in cooperation with industrial partners and research institutions by using digital fabrication. The exhibition showcases a vision of the future environmentally friendly architecture.

November talk at University of East London

In the lecture, entitled ‘Towards Industrialised Architecture’ Hanaa Dahy shared both her own projects and current projects by BioMat students. She opened with an introduction to the organisation, which accommodates internal and external PhD students, and covers biometrics, smart materials and design and fabrication systems, to explore the potential applications of bio-based materials in sustainable architecture.

Tailored Biocomposite Canopy 2019

The Tailored Biocomposite Mock-up, realized by the Department of Biobased Materials and Material Cycles in Architecture (BioMat), located at the Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE), is a single-curved canopy, generatively designed as a lightweight structure of 225cm high and 125cm width. Mock-up was fabricated by Tailored Fibre Placement (TFP) of flax natural fibers moulded to biocomposite.
