The ICD/ITKE Research Pavillon 2016-17 demonstrates the architectural and structural potential of glass and carbon fibre-reinforced composites. Based on the unique affordances and characteristics of fiber construction, a radically different approach to fabrication becomes possible. By combining long-range machines with limited payloads, a scalable fabrication setup for long-span fibre composite construction becomes possible.The research builds on a series of successful pavilions, which investigate integrative computational design, engineering and fabrication, and explores their spatial ramifications and construction possibilities. The project was designed and fabricated by students and researchers within an interdisciplinary team of architects, engineers and biologists. 

The ICD/ITKE Research Pavilion 2016-17 was created by laying a combined total of 184 km of resin- impregnated glass and carbon fibre. The lightweight material system was employed to create and test a single long spanning cantilever with an overall length of 12 m as an extreme structural scenario. The surface covers an area of about 40 m2 and weighs roughly 1000 Kg. The realized structure was manufactured offsite and thus the size was constrained to fit within an allowable transport volume. However, variations of the setup were found suitable for on-site or in situ fabrication, which could be utilized for much longer span and larger fibre composite structures. The prototypical pavilion is a proof-of-concept for a scalable fabrication processes of long-span, fibre composite structural elements, suitable for architectural applications.
