1. OBJEKT V is an augmented sculpture developed in the scope of an artistic research project with the working title LUMEN. The conceptual starting point of the associated works was to create wall objects located in the dynamic area between virtuality and reality.
    The basic idea - to establish a connection between the contrasting poles of a world that is increasingly separated into virtual and real spaces.
    Based on a plug-type system, the sculpture was designed as a virtual 3D-object. Using a 3D-printer and wood as a natural material, this virtual draft was transferred into a tangible condition.
    The resulting physical object constitutes the artwork’s “real” dimension. It seems to grow out of and into the underlying wall at the same time and, thereby, integrates into the spatial surroundings.

    The projected light – the virtual dimension of OBJEKT V – influences the relationship between the sculpture and the surrounding space. With a high end projector, as the only physical illuminant, we tried to achieve the illusion of multiple light sources interacting with both the sculpture and its ambiance. By merging the object shadows with their virtual counterparts, the logical reactions of light and shadow are subtly subverted to cause slight and yet playful irritations of the spectator’s perception.

  3. Bioplastic Façade Research Project:
    The ITKE has many years of experience in teaching and research in the fields of computer based design, simulation, and production of cladding for buildings with complex geometries. Currently, materials made from oil-based plastics, glass, or metal are mainly used to encase these structures. Thermoformable sheets of bioplastics will represent a resource-efficient alternative in the future, as they combine the high malleability and recyclability of plastics with the environmental benefits of materials consisting primarily of renewable resources.

    The bioplastics facade mock-up was created within the framework of the Bioplastic Facade Research Project, a project supported by EFRE (Europäischer Fonds für Regionale Entwicklung / European Fund for Regional Development). It demonstrates one of the possible architectural and constructional applications of bioplastic materials developed during the course of the project. The blueprint is based on a triangular net composed by mesh elements of varying sizes.

    Innovative Character of the Research Project:
    This research project marks the first occasion for the development of bioplastic sheets primarily based on renewable resources. The sheets can be freely formed, are designed for applications in the building industry and are specifically meant for building exteriors and cladding. At the beginning of the project such product was not available on the market. The conception of this material as flame-retardant sheet material also aims at applications for building interiors.

    With this new development, we can therefore soon offer a product that addresses two trends:
    - the increasing demand for resource-efficient and sustainable building materials
    - the increasing development of buildings featuring double-curved geometries and planar facade components with 3D effects (relief)

  4. Kinematics is a system for 4D printing that creates complex, foldable forms composed of articulated modules. The system provides a way to turn any three-dimensional shape into a flexible structure using 3D printing. Kinematics combines computational geometry techniques with rigid body physics and customization. Practically, Kinematics allows us to take large objects and compress them down for 3D printing through simulation. It also enables the production of intricately patterned wearables that conform flexibly to the body.
