Our research assistant Rolf Starke won the second prize and the audience prize for his idea "KIDD - Artificial Ossification for 3D Printing" as part of the Innofab ideas competition.

At a ceremony organized by the Association of German Landscape Architects (BDLA), Prof. Ilija Vukorep and his office LOMA architecture.landscape.urbanism received the award in the BDLA's "Digital Innovations" category for the project "Summer Island - The landscape from the digital matrix in Heilbronn".

On June 2nd, Prof. Ilija Vukorep gave a lecture at digitalBau, the largest trade fair for digital solutions in construction, on the subject of "research and practice" in the field of digital technology. The lectures were organized by World Architects and C.FATH.

The field of digital design methods deals with development and use of computer-aided technologies in architecture and construction. With the increasing digitalisation of everyday and working life, new methods are being developed in the planning and production of the built environment. The technologies of building and planning are evolving very fast, existing processes are being optimised and the creation of architectural forms is changing. The focus of the department in teaching and research lies in the interdisciplinary processing of topics at the interface of architecture, urban planning, landscape planning and building technology. It focus on topics such as CNC technology, parametric models, robots in construction, programming of forms as well as automatisation and control of complex processes.
