Inaugural lecture by Prof. Dr. Norman Hack
Code.Craft.Construct. Navigating the Digital Transformation in Architecture and Construction
Wednesday, 8. November 2023, 5.00 pm | Pockelsstr. 11, TU Braunschweig, Aula, Haus der Wissenschaft
As of today, the computer and the digitally controlled machine have a 70-year history in the architectural discourse. Over the years, the fields of application and the potentials of the computer in architecture have been constantly reinterpreted and implemented, whereby the natural sciences, philosophy and art have always had a significant influence on this discourse. In the inaugural lecture „Code.Craft.Construct. Navigating the Digital Transformation in Architecture and Construction“, Professor Hack gives an overview of the influential developments in the discourse of digital architecture and locates his own research on the map of these developments.

About TRR 277 AMC:
The Collaborative Research Center TRR 277 Additive Manufacturing in Construction (AMC) is dedicated to advancing research in the field of construction, with a focus on leveraging 3D printing technology to revolutionize sustainable and energy-efficient building practices. Through innovation and collaboration, the center aims to usher in a new era for the construction industry. In the interdisciplinary, cross-location and dfg-funded research project, the two universities TU Braunschweig and TU Munich, pursue the novel manufacturing approach for the construction industry. Additive manufacturing can develop into a key technology for the digitalization of the construction industry. Complex research questions on materials, process engineering, control, modeling, design and construction are being investigated holistically by scientists from the fields of civil and mechanical engineering.
