The building industry is responsible for considerable environmental impact due to its linear consumption of resources and energy, and the production of waste.
Modular architecture can reduce material waste and allows for constantly transforming structures. Discrete systems, consisting of a set of dry-jointed, interlocking parts provide great advantages for flexible and adaptable constructions with the ability of re-assembling the elements in different configurations. In the seminar participants will first get an overview of existing modular systems and subsequently design, simulate and fabricate interlocking, dry-jointed systems using computational modelling, rigid body simulation and 3d printing.
The course will be taught in English.
