1. The CorkCrete arch is a 1:1 scale construction developed by the DFL at the FAUP. Different robotic fabrication technologies were employed in the production of a novel building system made out of two different, but complementary, construction materials: Cork and Glass-Fiber reinforced Concrete (GRC).

    This work count with the collaboration of Amorim Isolamentos (cork) and Mota Engil (GRC) companies. It was part of a Research Project called "Robotic Technologies for a Non-Standard Design and Construction in Architecture" funded by the FCT and developed in collaboration with INESC TEC.
