BE–AM
Built Environment – Additive Manufacturing

BE-AM is an annual symposium on additive manufacturing for the built environment. International speakers from industry and academia report on their latest developments. It is organized by the Digital Design Unit (DDU) and the Institute of Structural Mechanics and Design (ISM+D) at TU Darmstadt in cooperation with Formnext.

On November 11, 2020 , the BE-AM | Built Environment – Additive Manufacturing symposium will take place at Formnext, Frankfurt. For the sixth time, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ulrich Knaack (Institute of Structural Mechanics and Design, ISMD) and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Oliver Tessmann (Digital Design Unit, DDU) invite experts from practice, research and industry to explore the current state and future potential of additive manufacturing for construction and architecture.

Speakers:

  • Prof. Prof. Philip Yuan – Tongji-Universität
  • Dr. Dr. Wilson Ricardo Leal da Silva – Royal Danish Institute
  • Tim Brodesser & Adam Rumjahn – Twente Additive Fertigung
  • Inéz Ariza – Gramazio & Kohler Research, ETH Zürich
  • Lehrerin C.M. Hä – DU Delft
  • R. R. R. Platt Boyd IV – Branchentechnik
  • Dr. Dr. Chiara Manfletti – Europäische Weltraumorganisation
  • Sandy Curth – MIT Architecture

Location: Formnext, Frankfurt

Date: Wednesday, November 11, 2020

On November 20, 2019, the BE-AM | Built Environment – Additive Manufacturing symposium will take place at Formnext, Frankfurt. For the fifth time, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ulrich Knaack (Institute of Structural Mechanics and Design, ISMD) and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Oliver Tessmann (Digital Design Unit, DDU) invite experts from practice, research and industry to explore the current state and future potential of additive manufacturing for construction and architecture.

Digitalization has significantly changed design and planning in recent years. With 3D printing, this development is now moving into the realm of construction. Materials such as concrete, clay and steel are being used in additive manufacturing processes, and 3D printers are achieving dimensions that meet the requirements of the construction industry. At the same time, complex material requirements, compliance with standards and norms, and integration of new processes into existing on-site operations present challenges that have yet to be overcome.

Speaking:

  • PROF. THEO SALET | TU EINDHOVEN
  • MORITZ MUNGENAST & OLIVER TESSIN | 3F STUDIO & STUDIO TESSIN
  • ERIC GEBOERS | CONCR3DE
  • ANA ANTON DBT | ETH ZÜRICH
  • PROF. HARALD KLOFT | ITE | TU BRAUNSCHWEIG
  • THOMAS FEHLHABER | UNIPOR
  • GIJS VAN DER VELDEN | MX3D
  • AMAURY THOMAS | SOLIQUID
  • PROF. JÖRG LANGE IFSW | TU DARMSTADT

Location: Formnext, Frankfurt

Date: Wednesday, November 20, 2019, 9:00 – 17:00 h

Members of the Chamber of Architects and Town Planners of Hesse (AKH) can earn 8 continuing education points by attending this specialized event in accordance with § 3 of the AKH's continuing education regulations.

On October 12, 2018, the BE-AM | Built Environment – Additive Manufacturing symposium will take place at the Georg-Christoph-Lichtenberg-Haus in Darmstadt. For the fourth time, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ulrich Knaack (Institute of Statics and Design, ISMD) and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Oliver Tessmann (Digital Design Unit, DDU) invite international experts from practice, research and industry to TU Darmstadt to explore the current state and future potential of additive manufacturing for building and architecture.

Digitalization has significantly changed design and planning in recent years. With 3D printing, this development is now beginning to continue in construction. Materials such as concrete, clay and steel are being used in additive manufacturing processes, and 3D printing processes are now reaching dimensions that are also becoming interesting for construction. At the same time, complex material requirements, compliance with standards and norms, and the integration of new processes into established procedures on the construction site present challenges that still need to be mastered.

The speakers at the BE-AM Symposium 2018 will report, among other things, on the first installed AM concrete components, 3D-printed street furniture made from plastic waste, and research projects on digital fabrication and robotics within the architectural practice of a planning office. The event is supported by formnext – International exhibition and conference on the next generation of manufacturing technologies – and the profile area From Material to Product Innovation – PMP of TU Darmstadt.

Speakers:

  • Alban Mallet, Xtreee, Paris
  • Wessel van Beerendonk, Studio RAP, Rotterdam
  • Foteini Setaki, The New Raw, Rotterdam
  • Kåre Stokholm Poulsgaard, GXN, Kopenhagen
  • Paulo Cruz, Advanced Ceramics R&D Lab, Guimarães/Portugal
  • Roberto Naboni, University Southern Denmark, Odense

The lectures will be held in English. Members of the Chamber of Architects of Hesse will receive continuing education credits for attending the symposium.
