Research at ETH Zurich
Prior to the summer workshop in Zurich, research was carried out to test methods of casting at 1:1 scale with this new material. With the workshop lasting only three weeks we needed a formwork methodology that was quick and itterative. By working with local fabricators we setup a hybrid developmental pipeline going from 3d model, to large format 3d print, to large format vacuum form. This meant we could create large reusable formworks quickly, allowing the students to focus more on the formal logic.  The  ‘memo format’ was used to collect the students sketches and photos in a uniform format. Research was done in colaboration with Nina Bischofberger in Zurich, Switzerland.
