The course deals with the design of precast reinforced concrete structures, both for bridges and for buildings.
The course is focused in learning by projects supplemented by some lectures by the teachers.
The students will work in groups to design a precast structure.
The UE Docta Manus will introduce drawing as the key tool of communication between engineers and architects and as a mediator between construction and the student. Through hand-drawing, we will analyse selected structural projects that embody an exemplary interplay of space and structure.
The ENAC week provides students the possibility to engage into an iterative process of testing and exploring structural and material limits and possibilities through the collaborative design and construction of structural elements in folded steel. The ENAC week will take place at EPFL Fribourg.
