DE-GRADABLES

STATEMENT Today, almost 39% of CO2 emissions are attributed to current construction processes. Architectural design implementations have the potential to address these environmental challenges through active and  passive strategies. Elements such as facades, walls, or interior components among others play a  role in the carbon cycles by capturing, storing and emitting carbon. Biochar, as a … Read more

3D-Printed Lost Formwork

This thesis explores a transformative approach to construction by integrating topologically optimized 3D printed formwork with fiber embedding between print layers. The research aims to revolutionize traditional construction methods by enhancing structural integrity, material efficiency, and overall performance. Topological optimization algorithms are employed to design intricate yet robust formwork structures, minimizing material usage while maintaining … Read more

Bamboo (EU)volution

Research Hypothesis This study explores the viability of using commercially cultivated Bamboo species in Europe as a construction material, alongside Concrete, Cross-laminated Timber, and Clay, tailored to various structural typologies across different European regions. It investigates the advantages of diverse bamboo species, with their unique morphological and mechanical characteristics, in creating hybrid material combinations  that … Read more

R-FIT

“Framed by the environmental crisis and taking into account the thermal and structural inefficiency of the existing building stock, this thesis will be an exploration on architecturally and structurally meaningful elements, as plugin systems to address the need for retrofitting. The main objective is to provide alternatives of structural retrofitting methods by utilizing robotic fabrication … Read more

Biochar Composites

BIOCHAR COMPOSITES: The use of biochar composites in architectural applications can significantly improve building performance. Additionally, the incorporation of biochar composites can expand the possibility of carbon sequestration in the architecture and construction sector, contributing to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly built environment. Our current Built Environment is responsible for carbon emissions, accounting for … Read more
