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 with the opportunity to apply theoretical structural principles in an applied context through the collaborative design and construction of thin wooden shells structures that test structural and material limits.The ENAC week will take place in the Blue Factory Fribourg
The UE Argamassa Armada will develop prototypes of structural elements in textile reinforced concrete (TRC) that allow the continuation of the TRC prototype pavilion started at EPFL Fribourg in 2019. The UE will take place in the Blue Factory in Fribourg.
