Material Beyond Materials Panel 1 Integrating Complexity

Urs Meier discusses performance analysis of a Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) box girder and Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) straps. He compares the performance of steel to CFRP and GFRP, and offers insight into the future of membranes. Kurt Jordan discusses composites used in high-performance yacht racing for the America’s Cup, structural fiberglass shells, fiberglass composite construction. He compares the strength and stiffness of conventional building materials to composites. Ruben Suare of the 3form company discusses Polyethylene Terephtalate (PETG) thermoplastic ceiling systems, translucent metal panels made of an aluminum/resin composite, and translucent wood panels, and translucent balconies using Varia Ecoresin.

 

Wolfgang Reider of fibreC discusses the uses of GFRC, translucent concrete, a concrete coloring system derived from auto industry, and smarter envelopes.

Fostering direct exchange between architects and companies invested in the field of advanced materials and fabrication technologies, SCI-Arc hosts Material beyond Materials: A Composite Tectonics Conference on Advanced Materials and Digital Manufacturing. Panel 1 consists of Moderator John Enright, and Presenters Urs Meier, Kurt Jordan, Ruben Suare, and Wolfgang Reider. The topic for Panel 1 is Integrating Complexity with an emphasis on prototyping, structural performance, complex analysis, and lightweight/integrated assembly. The Panel focuses on the potential for streamlining construction and the integration of composites within a larger available material palette.

Peter Cook describes the leftover infrastructure of urban environments as layered relics of past organizational systems. He discusses scale and materials, exploring the impact of concrete on the urban experience. Cook stresses the importance of clearly communicating ones intentions through innovative detailing and construction methods.


Susanne Zottl A Styrofoam Lover With (E)motions of Concrete

January 23, 2009 | Video Lecturer:

A conversation between Moss and Zottl about her installation utilizing a foam-concrete mixture proposed as a thermal application for older structures found in Vienna. They discuss the ramifications of historic conditions within Vienna, Austria, transformations of existing buildings and improving energy efficiency. Zottl discusses the process of construction and what she learned from it, and the utilization of interstitial spaces.

Jennings describes his Telegraph Hill house in San Francisco, which is centered around a cylindrical concrete circulation core. While he uses relatively cold materials such as glass, steel and concrete, due to the shapes of the spaces and attention to details, it creates a warm ambiance. Privacy is also ensured through a preference for indirect lighting or frosted glass, where a view is not available. He also describes his office and the unexpected lighting effects created by the custom designed furniture and doors.


Ecology for Our Future Part Two-clip_9265

Mark Bush, senior environmental control engineer for Northrup, talks about recycling on construction sites. This includes addressing landfill issues, metal recyclers, and the California Empty Standard, which requires there be no residue spill of hazardous materials when an container is turned upside down. Bush also talks about wood recycling, reuse, and landscaping debris. He recommends crushed recycled concrete as fill aggregate in construction, he also suggest finding recycling vendors or brokers. Terry Kennedy, a contractor who specializes in sustainable building, states he does not agree with the “myth” that building sustainably is more expensive. He highlights challenges with recycled wood, and mentions the product, Medite. He suggests thinking through the use of materials in order to ensure the principles of sustainability.
