EFN Workshop week in Detmold


In November 2015, the next EFN mobile workshop will be held. It takes place as part of this year’s facade week in Detmold, next to our EFN meetings and the conference “Computational Optimisation”. The workshop will be based on the theme of the conference. As in the workshops before, our goal is to develop innovative façade constructions with international student teams of our European Façade Network.

In the very last minute all 8 mock-ups were finished and ready to be presented at the International Conference of Architectural Envelopes ICAE in San Sebastian. At the conference we had the chance to discuss the concept of disassembly and its consequences with representatives from companies, architects and planners. The built model helps the discussion about different aspects of the design.

Participants will develop innovative adaptive facade components

From June 15th to 17th 2015 we are holding a workshop about multifunctional adaptive façades. It will take place as part of the EFN-mobile workshop series at the Technical University in Delft and is based on the research of “ThinkingSkins” by Jens Böke.

Tools are waiting to build new ideas in facades

 

The topic for this workshop is High Architecture Low Carbon. The San Sebastian Master students started a research on existing facades and their connections. The aim is to find out which façade types bear more potential for disassembling than others. Now the groups are working on the function hierarchy (3 functions will be defined) and first sketches of their design. May we will be ready to build the facades- From May 21st to 26th we will take our tent and the EFN mobile workshop to San Sebastian – Donostia.

As part of the efnMobile program, the IFDC students presented facade prototypes on the Glasstec2014 fair

During the Glasstec 2014 in Düsseldorf (21-24 October), the efnMobile stand had a great success. Different mockups and prototypes developed by students and researchers in the last workshops were exposed. As well, lectures from experts in the field with good attendance of public were held.
