Selbst-formendes Holz: Material Science meets Architecture

April 22, 2021 / A. Menges, L. Kiesewetter, D. Wood, T. Cheng

Girls' Day 2021

ICD researchers Laura Kiesewetter, Dylan Wood, and Tiffany Cheng will teach a Girls' Day workshop about self-shaping wood.

Each year, Germany celebrates Girls' Day – a day dedicated to nurturing young women's curiosity by encouraging them to explore opportunities in science and technology.

Wood is one of the oldest building materials in the world - and thanks to advances in technology and simulation software, we understand it better and better. Because of its special properties, wood can be used to create self-forming components for buildings, or shading facade elements that react to the weather without needing electricity.

Would you like to take a look behind the scenes of research in the field of architecture? Then you are cordially invited to our digital Girls' Day event!
