This week, ICD Research Associates Moritz Dörstelmann and Lauren Vasey will give keynote lectures at TU Dresden’s International Summer School on Construction Bionics. Lauren will give a lecture on “Behavioral Building: Construction strategies from nature for adaptive and feedback-driven robotic processes in architecture.” Moritz’ lecture, “Fibrous Structures in Nature and Technology,” will include ongoing research and projects at ICD and ITKE, including the Elytra Filament Pavilion as well as ICD/ITKE Research Pavilion 2013/2014.

The International Summerschool “Construction Bionics” at TU Dresden is a workshop for excellent young researchers, PhD-students and PostDocs from all over the world with a shared interest in biology, material science, civil engineering, design, construction and robotics to explore future trends in bio-inspired construction processes. The workshop is directed by  Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jörg Rainer Noennig, and organized by Anja Jannack, and Sebastian Wiesenhuetter of TU Dresden. Funding is made possible by the Excellence Initiative of the German Federal Government. Additional information is available here
