Description

Setting new developments in digital graphic construction methods against the backdrop of time-tested design principles results in extraordinary approaches to the design of self-supporting structures. Using their Armadillo Vault, which was recognised at the Biennale 2016 in Venice, the Block Research Group at ETH Zürich describes their research, development processes and visions of resource-saving, refined and steel-free support structures. Fundamental to their work is an intensive exploration of principles.  

The Block Research Group is the DETAIL Reader Prize Winner for 2016.
