Course Content (Syllabus)
The aim of the workshop is to design lightweight structures. The main educational objectives are: 1. Familiarity with curves (top view, view, sections) 2. Drawings after the model! 3. Design from the outside to the inside! 4. The 'dynamic' model is more than a three-dimensional object! 5. Membrane folding, deflation, modular-mobile construction 6. Ephemeral Architecture 7. Recyclable light materials 8. Sheath resulting from atmospheric pressure and vacuum 9. Scaffolding - Movable weights / immovable building weights> 1 10. Suspended construction is a space frame or a 'high technology' cable and cable system! Familiarity with Statics. 11. Trees, as forms of construction, refer to nature. Biomorphism.
