Asymptotic Geodesic Timber Vault

This research project combines new methods from applied geometry, computational engineering, and structural design. By designing webs of asymptotic and geodesic curves simple planks of ash wood are woven together in their tall and flat orientation into a lightweight timber

Kinetic Umbrella

The Kinetic Umbrella is an elastically transformable lattice structure for the Kreativquatier in Munich. The research project investigates geometrical, mechanical and constructive solutions for kinetic structures, which are manufactured from exclusively straight lamellas. In the design, the joint and support
