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.

Introduction by:

Peter Pearce argues that throughout history significant innovations in architectural design occurred due to structural innovations, while modern architecture seems more concerned with pure aesthetics rather than trying to accommodate structural innovation. He uses the saxophone as a familiar example of high-performance design. He discusses his own space frame structures, and his work on refining the connecting joint.
