WITHIN: Exploring the possibilities of Additive Manufacturing of bio-based materials on an architectural scale

Abstract [en]

 “WITHIN” investigates the potential use of Additive Manufacturing of CNF gel (Cellulose Nano Fibrils gel) when applied on an architectural scale.

This thesis explores how to take advantage of the physical and chemical properties of the CNF gel which, combined with saw dust and other additives, is used as the material of the building’s main structure, providing high stiffness and light weight. The material studies are carried out at INNVENTIA, a research institution with extensive experience studying wood and its derivative products.

The program is a temporary middle scale landscape intervention, located in the island of Kungsholmen; a floating recreational facility that recalls Stockholm’s archipelago in an urban context. The project boosts the current activities of the site all year round.

The proposed fabrication method shifts from the traditional layer-upon-layer 3D printing; instead, the structural elements are extruded on site using a collaborative swarm of robotic arms.

The structural principle is based on the extensive use, on different scales, of the triangle and the tetrahedron, which are the most stable geometrical figures -cannot be deformed-.

Design challenges are tackled with help of computational techniques, parametric tools and generative design, encompassed with digital fabrication.
