IaaC Research - Open Thesis Fabrication 2010: New Prosthesis Exoskeletons

Open Thesis Fabrication 2010: New Prosthesis Exoskeletons

Program: Open Thesis Fabrication 2010
Research Candidate:  Joel Letkemann

Project description: The New Prosthesis project uses digital fabrication techniques to cut and bend wood into lightweight and materially efficient structures. These pieces are bent without form work, using the specific control of the laser cutter to define joints instead, thus avoiding wasteful form work.

Program Advisors: Marta Malé-Alemany, Luis Fraguada
Guest Tutors: Kas Oosterhuis (Oosterhuis_Lénárd, Tu Delft-Director of Hyperbody), Theodore Spyropoulos (Minimaforms, AA Architectural Assosiation), Tomasz Jaskiewicz (Tu Delft_Researcher at Hyperbody)
