Load-bearing Structures within Design I

This course is dedicated to the theoretical fundamentals of load-bearing structures for a wide variety of building typologies on the basis of preliminary architectural designs, taking into account the essential principles of vertical and horizontal load transfer up to pre-dimensioning and material calculation. The basics needed to perform various simulations and calculations independently are taught.
Resource consumption, production and construction methods are also part of the course.

Structures and Digital Fabrication

Beginning with current aspects of structural design where architecture and robotic manufacturing meet, theoretical and independent contributions are systematically developed on the basis of research and presented using scientific and practical methods.

After successful completion of the course, the students have in-depth knowledge of the state of research for current aspects of structural design where architecture and robot-assisted manufacturing meet. They are capable of independent critical and comprehensible observation.

Workshop 2

Following successful completion of the course students will be able to assess a situation, develop concepts and formulate them ready for presentation in a design within a given timeframe. They will be familiar with how to deal with a task in the course of a single week and will be capable of verbally communicating and presenting their works and designs in models, plans and complementary illustrations. Capabilities acquired are to be understood as an input for the “design” course and should be applied there.
