Biometric Pavilions

The Bundesgartenschau Hortical Show in Germany this year is even more special as the University of Stuttgart has constructed two pavilions for the show using Biomimicry and Robotic Construction. Both the pavilions were completely built by robots and its design was an imitation of nature itself. The wooden pavilions were based on the shape of sea urchins and the composite pavilion made of fiber is structured after Beetle wings. Stuttgart's Institute for Computational Design and Construction (ICD) and the Institute for Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE) have been studying the shell of sea urchins for almost a decade and now after understanding the benefits it has on constructed; it has been adopted for the same. This entire wood pavilion is made using 376 unique plate segments that fit together like a Jigsaw with sub-millimeter precision. The Sea Urchin family has a distinctive skeleton and the structure has been built up by making use of tightly interlocking plates for replication.

 Here at Sigma College of Architecture, one of the Top Architectural Colleges in Tamil Nadu we help our students broaden their horizons by educating them on projects that think outside the box.
