The Architecture Research Incubator is a central facility at the Department of ARCHITECTURE for coordinating INTERDISCIPLINARY research and development competencies in the design, engineering, urban developement and IT sectors. It strengthens existing RESEARCH activities, opens up new fields of research and acquires projects. It organizes development partnerships with BUSINESSES and institutions in the municipal region of Munich. The participating research groups work from a co-working space that adjoins the prototyping workshops at the Technical Center. The facility promotes students with a strong research focus and aims to STRENGTHEN the culture of project DEVELOPEMENT, cooperation, entrepreneurship and funding application at the Department of Architecture.
Repetitive Surface Structures
"Gridshells are highly efficient structurs bcause they carry loads throgh their curved shapes with very little material. Through physical and computational experiments we demonstrate new possibilities for an intelligent symbiosis"
Dipl.-Ing. Architekt Eike Schling, Chair of Structural Design
2.Place for FLUID MORPHOLOGY
"Advantage of free structural cladding for various buildings - incorporating various technologies like load transfer, insulation, shading, daylight utilisation, ventilation, sound absorption up to integrated illumination."
Dipl.-Ing. Univ. Moritz Mungenast, Professorship of Architectural Design and Building Envelope.
