The architectural research work is a continuation of Sense II. It extends the exploration into milling patterns, where the previously three-layered prefabricated sandwich elements are advanced into two-layered behavioural composites with bending behavioural characteristics that can be influenced and articulated through the developed method and fabrication technique. The work furthermore studies the ability of copper as a singular material with different emissivity properties to act differently according to a specific thermal environment.
A large full-sized prototype was installed at the Copenhagen harbour front at the Danish Architecture Center, DAC, where it serves as a demonstrator of the research in form of an ongoing experiment. Sensor networks installed in the structure monitor the behaviour of the envelope over a time span of three months.
The research work is presented at the International DMSC Conference (2015) in Copenhagen, DK, and published in the proceedings with the paper entitled 'Computational Assembling Behavioural Composites by Additive and Subtractive Processes'.
