Promoted under the auspices of ICSA2016 this workshop had it genesis in proposals developed by students of the course of Special Structures of the Master in Architecture of the School of Architecture of the University of Minho (EAUM). The solutions focused on the design of a reciprocal structure to be built at the Design Institute of Guimarães (former Tanning Factory of Ramada). The one which proposed a structural hexagonal grid was selected.
The workshop involved EAUM students and staff to implement constructive solutions, in the manufacturing of all components and in the assembling of the structure: approximately 300 bars wil lbe produced and more than 500 bolted connections were used. Organization: Prof. Paulo Cruz and Prof. Bruno Figueiredo
