Institute of Lightweight Structures and Conceptual Design (ILEK)


The Adaptive Truss Prototype is in permanent exhibition at the Institute of Lightweight Structures and Conceptual Design (ILEK), University of Stuttgart. Since 2017 I was appointed international correspondent member for the Collaborative Research Center Adaptive Shells and Structures for Tomorrow’s Built Environment (SFB 1244) funded by the German Research Foundation. Thanks to the collaboration with ILEK, the Adaptive Truss Prototype will be used to carry out further research as well as to disseminate the principles of reducing material and energetic impacts through smart technologies in order to rethink the way buildings and structures are designed.
