Topology Optimisation

Topology optimization describes a generative process for the creation of minimum weight structures with maximum stiffness.
For a description see:

Some screendumps, workstudies and studies for topology optimized geometries, all wip. tests are done with [...]

Manifest for Leopold Lambert [ ]

Leopold Lambert  from Pratt asked me to write a manifesto for a future architecture. and this was the result:

To write about a future vision of Architecture asks for a systematic concept on how we can blend competing interests and possibilities, be they of technological, economical or social nature, into a building practice.  I don´t have [...]

Workshop Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen

Generative Design with Topologically Optimized Structures (see blog

The 5 day workshop will investigate a generative formfinding method for the creation of minimum weight structures with maximized Stiffness. This methodology that is more common in mechanical engineering and aeronautical research projects should be investigated for a potential application in an architectural [...]

Material Tests of 3D FGM

Graded stiffness Values of three Additive fabrication probes with 3D heterogenous properties
The following experiment investigates the creation of a three-dimensionally gradient material with varying degrees of stiffness with the aid of additive fabrication. The experiment employs a performance profile that is created through finite element analysis (FEA) for the creation of locally different mechanical properties. [...]
