final masterstudio ige tugraz

The aim of the studio was to design a office building located in Barcelona St. Marti with approx. 25.000m² of gross floor area.
So in my design i decided to tilt the rooftop based on various simulations which where done in Autodesk Ecotect directing south. This was done to increase the amount of solarradiation which falls on the rooftop. The rooftop is covered with monocrystalline photovoltaic cells with an efficiency factor up to 20percent. So i can harvest one fifth of the total energy amount required on site. Also the curtain walls where tilted for the reason to overshadow the curtain walls during hot periods by itself. This simulation was done with a Rhino plugin called EVE-Sun developed by Dr. Milos Dimcic` from www.programmingarchitecture.com. (Thanks for letting me use this nice tool) The floorplans are very fluent with a lot of recreation patio spaces, the inspiration comes from the Rolex learning centre by SANAA.

I did this project together with Gabriel Tschinkel and Peter Hörzenauer. By the way a big thanx goes out to DI Felix Raspall www.felixraspall.com, DI Felix Amtsberg (ITE), Dr. -Ing. Milos Dimcic from www.programmingarchitecture.com and Stefan PETERS, Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. who helped us a lot with scripting and translate this thing to the robot. You can follow the link to see the final video of the scaled robotic fabrication of one of our panels.

THE BUILDING PLOT
The Serpentine Gallery is an art gallery in Kensington Gardens, Hyde
Park, central London (UK). It focuses on modern and contemporary art.

design for a low budget bed

My aim was to design a low budget bed by using cans from tinned food, and the cheapest wood material i could find for that use in a home improvement center.

But the material wasn’t that cheap than i thought so i decided not to build the bed.
