VITEZSLAV STEMBERA, TU Wien, Austria How to Predict the Plastic Collapse of Structures Efficiently? The prediction of the collapse load (limit load) of a structure made of a material exhibiting elastic plastic behavior is very often of practical interest. The
ARVIN RASOULZADEH, TU Wien, Austria Variational Path Optimization of Linear Pentapods A “linear pentapod” is a five degree-of-freedom parallel robot with a linear motion platform. From an applied point of view, these mechanisms can be of great importance as they
MICHAEL HENSEL, TU Wien, Austria Embedded Architectures – En route to Data-driven Modelling for Architecture and Environment Integration Sustainability requirements are becoming rapidly more complex and pressing as climate change and related societal, economic and environmental problems unfold. Human modifications
GORAN SIBENIK, TU Wien Data Exchange between Architectural Design and Structural Analysis Models Digital exchange between domain-specific models of architecture and structural engineering is still burdened with numerous problems such as data and information losses, wrong interpretation of geometry, etc.

KATHRIN DÖRFLER, Technical Univeristy of Munich, Germany Strategies for Robotic On-site Construction The ability to fabricate digitally planned building components with robots not only extends the spectrum of construction possibilites, but it also allows for the direct implementation of material
PETER SCHRÖDER, California Institute of Technology, USA Shape from Metric Given an abstract surface and its metric what is its shape? This question does not have a unique (or even necessarily any) answer when studied in mathematics. Yet for triangle

JAN KNIPPERS, University of Stuttgart, Germany Integrative Computational Design and Construction for Architecture The detrimental environmental impact and lack of productivity coupled with the multifaceted relevance of architecture clearly indicates that we urgently need new approaches to design and construction.
MIRELA BEN-CHEN, Israel Institute of Technology, Israel Chebyshev Nets on Discrete Surfaces From gridshells to fruit packaging, quad meshes with uniform edge lengths are often needed in surface modeling. The analogous smooth mathematical structure is called a Chebyshev net. In
The real-time exploration of very large virtual environments is highly relevant in application areas such as architecture, industry, entertainment, cultural heritage (archeology, exhibitions), tourism and many others. We offer multiple VR setups to explore and interact with very large virtual
The research groups of the center have long-standing experience with 3D reconstruction and analysis of geometrical objects of any size, with TEAM the reconstruction of real-time large scale indoor environments – in combination with thermal information for fire fighters for
„Tracking” is the precise measurement of an object’s position and orientation in 3D space. Interactive applications (including Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality) often require the precise head/eye position of a user and a hand/controller position for 3D interaction. We have extensive
3D designers and architects often face the problem to create virtual environments with a large number of individual buildings and other objects. We have developed different techniques to facilitate this task, by allowing the designer to specify abstract descriptions of
For a realistic depiction of architectural scenes, it is important to perform a physically based simulation of light transport. We are able to provide photorealistic depictions of arbitrary geometric scenes, and we are actively working on solutions to update high
Dynamic elements are attractive in Architecture, Art and Design. For some purposes, such as shading systems, they are important for function, for others like „Transformable Design” they enhance the artistic expression through shape changes over time. We perform research in
Digital fabrication becoming a consumer-level technology brings about the demand for novel paradigms of digital model design. This is a truly difficult task as occasional users often need both, an inspiration to realize what they would like to build, as
Existing workflows to design, commission, and operate geometrically or functionally complex facilities are characterized by knowledge-intensive but highly repetitive tasks. Examples include the optimal placement of wayfinding signs, the detection and resolution of clashes in systems integration, or the dynamic
3D modeling systems provide the user with a variety of tools for generating digital models of almost arbitrary shape and complexity. However, these models may have to be adapted in order to facilitate manufacturing. A prominent example is the rationalization
Design is a intricate task as it involves an intuitive component. Moreover, in most cases, there are constraints governed by aspects such as function, behavior of materials, manufacturing processes, or production cost. These constraints limit the design space, but those
Different media are employed to understand all aspects of a design task in architecture. Rational, quantifiable aspects of a design can be handled well using design and analysis methods from the digital domain, such as parametric modeling, scripting, simulation and
