Bucky Lab Finals

This week we had our finals, and with 18 groups and our sponsors from CRH it was actually quite a big one ...we met in the Berlage Rooms and had already difficulties to place the 36 models in that big room ...

We recently had a mini symposium about production technologies in which we also commented on our students presentation skills and what can we say: It paid off - 18 wonderful presentations and everyone listening with full attentions.

Soon we will publish the projects here, but for now we can only say: Wow this was a blast ...and BOUTs invitation for a beer after the long day a well earned treat.

Have a look by yourself !

Gevel 2018 Bucky Lab Exhibition

just a week before we had our finals we took the 1:10 scale models to the national facade trade fair gevel in Rotterdam. Seeing all 18 little row houses in a row was a wonderful set up. The models as Dr. Bucky Labs presentation on Thursday causes a lot of interests and we are looking forward to proceed the contact we got about possible collaborations in the future.

For now have a look to get a first impression.

What do you get when you place a white cloth in the middel of our beloved orange hall and place a horde of students in front of it and fire a couple of flashlight at them ...?

Yes a set of great pictures, smiles and an astonishing set of prototypes ..astonishing ? Yes ! really !

With the task of building a full scale detail and a 1:10 scale model of the entire terrace shading we developed this semester under the guidance and support of CRH we got a very nice set of concepts.

Have a first glimpse here and don't miss the prototypes on the gevel trade fair next week in Rotterdam, all 18 scale models will be exposed there !

But enough of the words, here are a couple of pictures we took from the group ...more to follow
