A Complex Twisting Syntax: New Research Pavilion at the University of Stuttgart

The Institute for Computational Design (ICD) and the Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design (ICD) at the University of Stuttgart have erected a new bionic test building. This research pavilion, made of resin-saturated fibreglass and carbon-fibre bundles, is one of a series of successful prototypes at the University of Stuttgart which show the potential of new design, simulation and manufacturing techniques in architecture. Over eighteen months, the project was realized by research assistants and students comprising an interdisciplinary team of biologists, paleontologists, architects and engineers. A film shows us the assembly process.
