The Programmed Column 2, ETH Zurich, 2010
Elective course
Based on the findings of the elective course "The Programmed Column 1",the students were challenged to design and fabricate 3 prototypical brick columns of 4m height each within a 4 week workshop. Functional load bearing criteria had to be integrated with the column design in a parametric system. By the means of models, prototypes in 1:1 scale and digital simulations within a software package for structural analysis the students designed 3 different prototypes that were subsequently assembled on a robotic fabrication unit.
The course was conducted in collaboration with BLOCK Research Group - Assistant chair of Building Structure Philippe Block.
