Wroclaw Summerschool 2019 - the fire house

To fight fire with a cardboard structure is always a challenge. The team quickly figured out that solid cardboard or greyboard are already a good choice due to its dense structure. Most problems always accused on the cut edges - so in order to solve this problem the team decided to create no open edges at all and made bended edges to avoid open corners.

When joined together with glue as a straight line the risk of letting fire into the core of the sheets is minimised. So what looks like a design choice is actually a clever engineering solution to avoid open edges at the corner of the house.

We are very curious about the performance. The house will be after its completion entirely cladded with 2 layers of solid cardboard and should perform very well.
