Bio-inspired 3D Printed Hygroscopic programmable material systems
According to Project Team Institute for Computational Design, University of Stuttgart Prof. Achim Menges, David Correa, and Steffen Reichert, “The biological systems rely on differentiated materials and structured material systems that are at the same time sensor, actuator, and regulator. Previous research at the Institute for Computational Design explored the transfer of these biological principles to architectural systems based on hygroscopically actuated wood-veneer composite systems, leading to the development of the HygroScope Installation (Centre Pompidou, Paris, 2012) and the first building application for the HygroSkin Pavilion (FRAC Centre, Orleans, 2013).”
