Efficient fabrication system for geometrically complex building elements
Efficient fabrication system for geometrically complex building elements

This entry is focused on the development of a smart but simple methodology to design and prefabricate building elements with complex geometries, which is resource efficient and considerably reduces construction waste. Complex geometries are utilized in contemporary architecture for the construction of concrete or mortar building envelopes, partition walls, horizontal and vertical shading elements and pavements.

The Dryline
The Dryline

The Dryline (BIG U) addresses New York City’s vulnerability to coastal flooding with a protective ribbon in Southern Manhattan. The 12 km-long infrastructural barrier incorporates public space with the high-water barrier doubling as parks, seating, bicycle shelters or skateboard ramps. Embankments add green areas and spaces beneath elevated roadways are built out with pavilions for public use. In an emergency, the shutters close forming a floodwater barrier.

Prototype Droneport Shell
Prototype Droneport Shell

The Droneport supports cargo drone routes capable of delivering urgent and precious supplies to remote areas on a massive scale. Cargo drone routes have utility wherever there is a lack of roads, and transcend geographical barriers such as mountains, lakes, and unnavigable rivers without the need for large-scale physical infrastructure. The project offers an “infrastructural leap” using drone technology and clean energy systems to surmount the challenges of the future.
