Procedural Landscapes 2, ETH Zurich, 2011

“State of the art technology in the field of non-standard concrete formwork is largely based on subtractive and waste intensive fabrication methods. These methods prove very efficient for a large scale production of identical parts. An efficient and sustainable fabrication of individual parts demands for the development of new formwork strategies. This teaching project proposes the use of granular materials such as sand as a reusable molding material to fabricate unique building elements in concrete with a minimum of waste resulting from the formwork. The analysis of the self-organizational properties of the material and the subsequent extraction of design parameters allows to precisely control the material aggregations and exploit this process for digital design and fabrication.”¬†Gramazio & Kohler
