Karola Dierichs and Achim Menges, Institute for Computational Design, have received an Acknowledgement Award at the International Holcim Awards for Sustainable Construction 2014.
The proposed scheme was praised by the jury for its focus on multi-disciplinary research at the forefront of architecture, engineering, and materials science. The jury views the project as the first step of a laboratory experiment, potentially leading to the development of new construction systems. The suggested method of how to join individual parts to form large aggregate structures is especially promising.
