Martin Manegold will give a lecture on our 3D-printed facade knot on tuesday 1st december 13:30 - 17:15. The event is as part of the Technologieland Hessen series and is organized by Haute Innovation, one of the leading organisations if you want to be informed about latest materials and technologies. Next to Martin Manegold will be other very interesting speakers showing the potential and the current state of art in 3D-printing for the building industry.
The event is for fre
Our 3D-printed facade knot is not only discussed online but found its way to printed magazines as well. German magazine "fassadentechnik" featured a good article about the topic and include interviews with the research partners as well.
The preview of the article can be found online here. And the german podcast can be found here. #3DDruck #3Dprinting #facade #research #innovation #NextStudio #lecture #Frankfurt #evenet #wicona #computation #Rhino3D #Csharp #parametricDesign #
Today we proudly announce our new collaboration KHIC - a joint venture of Knippers Helbig and Imagine Computation GmbH, offering integrated planning from initial system design to shop preparation for geometrically complex structures and facades in steel, glass and other materials. By combining design, engineering, and computation in a fully integrated planning process, KHIC increases efficiency and reliability from the preliminary system design phase to shop preparation. Fro
It has been a while ago since we had been working on this project but reading this article and seeing the images still makes us proud having been part of the team. This article by Jürgen Wax - CEO at Josef Gartner GmbH - gives a glimpse about the challenges that faced everybody involved in this project. https://igsmag.com/features/case-studies/one-fen-court-complex-facade-geometries-and-diversity-of-materials-make-this-building-more-than-the-sum-of-its-architectural-parts/ #J
During our work on HSS project our client Schindler FENSTER + FASSADEN asked if it is possible to use our BIM model to show the current status of each element in an easy way during meetings. So we developed a small tool to do so: Each element gets additional custom phasing attribute status that can be set to different predefined values. These attribute then defines the display colour of the element in viewer to easily grasp the status of the project: in design (yellow) in pro
Wir freuen uns beim ersten Fassaden Digital Symposium dabei sein zu dürfen! Die FH Kärnten veranstaltet in Kooperation mit bauinformation.com zum ersten Mal das Fassaden Symposium als digitale Veranstaltung. Das Event findet am 17.09.2020 von 8:45 - 19 Uhr statt und wartet mit sieben Referenten rund ums Thema Fassade auf. Mit dabei sind u.a. die Kollegen Erwin Trommer / Frener&Reifer und Lars Anders / Priedemann. Nachdem wir bereits vor kurzem einen Live-Vortrag zum Thema Aut
As the initial presentation of our 3D-printed facade knots on March 26 has been cancelled because of Corona we had been working with our partners on a new way for presenting the results of our research: On Wednesday May 27th 4 pm you will be able to see the presentation as online event live streamed from Next Facade Studio in Frankfurt. Presenters will be: DI Martin Manegold (Imagine Computation) Prof. Dr. Ulrich Knaack (TU Darmstadt) Kai Kegelmann (Kegelmann Technik) Martin
Good news inmidst of Corona: We are assigned to do the 3D-modeling and shop drawing of the aluminum sheet metal parts of the facade for the "Innovationspark Zusmarshausen" for Ebener GmbH. This project by Sortimo is based close to Autobahn A8 between Munich and Stuttgart and will be the largest E-gas station of the world. All in all it will hold 144 charging stations. The futuristic design by local architect Wunderle + Partner shows clearly the claim of being the future of mo
During this years "5th FACHDIALOG FASSADENPLANUNG" on March 26, we will present the first full-size mock-up of a facade element with 3D printed facade nodes at Next Studio Frankfurt. The facade element is part of the development Project within the ZIM network Building AM. The research partners here are the companies Kegelmann Technik, Rossmanith Fenster + Fassade and imagine computation as well as the Institute ISM+D of the TU Darmstadt. The form-fitting Connection of facade
Yesterday was another great event in Frankfurt based NEXT Studio. We had very interesting talks on architecture, sustainability in building Industry and about structural glass sealings. After a short introduction of Dr.-Ing. Jager of Wicona the evening was guided by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ulrich Knaack and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jens Schneider. First Jan Dechow (Architecture Collective MIND, Mainz, Germany) showed as some example projects of his yet young Office which showed love for simplic
