ADAPTIVE STRUCTURES

19. September 2019

The requirements of our modern and digital society also demand continuous further thinking in the building industry. The days of dolmens seem to be finally over…

convex ZT GmbH works together with the Institute of Structural Design of the Graz University of Technology on the development of self-supporting lightweight structures, which can be altered by user behaviour. Strategies for the implementation of adaptive structures are being further developed, and approaches for the control of such structures are being researched together with the Institute of Machine Elements and Development Methodology at Graz University of Technology. The results will be demonstrated by means of a prototype. This prototype will be in international competition at the “Form and Force” conference in Barcelona, Spain.

The project is supported by FFG funding for innovative SMEs, the “innovation voucher with co-payment“.
