BioMat Pavilion 2021 (LightPRO Shell)

The LightPRO Shell Pavilion is a lightweight structure that combines an active-bending gridshell made of natural fibre biocomposite profiles with a tensile membrane. The resulting system is a combination of two doubly curved surfaces that share a continuous beam outline. The outline is composed of two connected profiles that act as a beam, transferring forces from both systems to three anchor points attached to a superficial foundation.

BauNetz awards – 2nd place for Timo Sippach

Congratulations to BioMat master student Timo Sippach who get 2nd place in BauNetz awards. Awards are given to the best theses (bachelor, master) in the field of architecture, urban planning, landscape architecture, interior design from universities in Germany and Europe. Awarded thesis called “Structure optimization through fiber orientation of natural fiber composites” investigates innovative optimization of a lightweight construction element which is created through the combination of biological role models, materials, and interdisciplinary manufacturing methods.
