Glass and carbon fiber-reinforced composites have uniquely high tensile strength while remaining lightweight. As a result, they open up a wealth of new building opportunities. The ICD/ITKE Research Pavilion is meant to demonstrate and explore these potentials using long-range machines with limited payloads, like unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as precise industrial robots. Basically, the drones and robots work together (with some human guidance) to "weave" the formally-ambitious pavilion.
The Pavilion is a project of the University of Stuttgart. In the past, other pavilions have explored computational design as well as emerging engineer technologies.
