This years Material Production started after the final design for the prototype was chosen and ran parallel to the further development of the design. The main goals were: – to monitor the amount, humidity and density of the locally sourced aleppo pine wood – to simulate production flows in the workshop (tools and time needed, … Read more
During the first six months in the program, students are comprehensively trained in the principles of design and construction of advanced ecological buildings through a series of focused and intense modules, which include material production, thermal and metabolic building systems, ecological structures and façade systems and much more. After developing the necessary skills and a holistic understanding of advanced and ecological design, students collectively draft and build a full scale ecological building prototype.
Course: MAEBB01 22/23 Material Production
Within the duration of the Material Production Course, students will create and manufacture various biobased materials which will be used in the Final Prototype Construction. This process will involve transforming raw substrates into finished products through a series of steps such as extracting, processing, and finishing. The types of materials to be produced will be decided through the prototype design development process.view Syllabus & Faculty
