How concrete facades can be used as energy-generating solar collectors
Bau Kunst Erfnden is collaborating on a new system called SolarChip with the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie and a consortium of six partners from industry.
Innovative façade elements are beeing developed that can accommodate solar elements
of any type or generation, including future generations that have yet to be developed.
Technical radial braiding of solid wood structures
From July 2021, BAU KUNST ERFINDEN and the Institute of Materials Science at Hof University of Applied Sciences will cooperate in the TERA X | Braided Wood project. The aim of the project is to develop tubular solid wood braids as textile semi-finished products for architecture and construction. Our continuous filament of solid wood meets industrial braiding robots. The project is funded within the framework of the Forschungsinitiative Zukunft Bau by the Federal Institute for Research on Building, Urban Affairs and Spatial Planning´of the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community.
