AA Summer DLAB 2018, directed by Elif Erdine and taught by Studio Tutor Alican Sungur, EmTech alumni Giulio Gianni and Yutao Song , explored the integration of geometrical, structural and material properties within the agency of robotic sheet metal expansion. In engineering, there is a need for light materials able to withstand different load conditions. The structural behaviour of expanded metal sheets has the potential to yield architecturally interesting and materially efficient assemblies. The research agenda aims to link the notions of complexity and simplicity throughout the design and fabrication processes.

 

The final working prototype has been constructed on the AA terrace. For more information, follow the below link:
