title InFoamed Matter - Robotic production and assembly of foam-injected structures
source Sousa, JP, Xavier, JP and Castro Henriques, G (eds.), Architecture in the Age of the 4th Industrial Revolution - Proceedings of the 37th eCAADe and 23rd SIGraDi Conference - Volume 2, University of Porto, Porto, Portugal, 11-13 September 2019, pp. 235-240
summary Project InFoamed Matter works with foam and explores the internal logic of the material and develops a construction system based on fluidity and expansion. The basic unit of the system consists of two elements, that continuously exchange their roles in the construction process - the frame (controlling element made of paper or, in later development, from glass or carbon fiber cured in epoxy resin) and the expander (filling element consisting of 2k polyurethane foam). The expander fills up voids within the frame. While initially only the frame plays crucial structural role within a system, the expander being a filling element, eventually the hardening process switches the roles, hardened expander being the structural core and the frame being a form-defining tool. In later development, fiber frame creates a composite together with hardened expander, being able to resist both tension and compression forces. Project further proposes computational model, which generates positions and orientations for placing further components as well as a robotic fiber laying, assembly and injection system, which leads to novel automated construction system based on material behavior.
