IaaC, in collaboration with Map13 Architects: Marta Domenech, David Lopez, Mariana Palumbo, has finalized the Parametrized Catalan Vault, result of a 2 week-long workshop where a team of 27 Students designed and constructed a thin-tile vault in our forest campus in Valldaura.

Advanced digital tools along with traditional century-old Catalan masonry techniques will be deployed in the process, with students seeking to re-engineer, compute, and eventually construct a Vault in the forest.

IaaC is also furthering this research investigating in the field of advanced robotic fabrication techniques towards the implementation and automization of these complex catalan vault forms. Special thanks to Areti Markopoulou, Lucas Cappelli and Ioan Pribagu for the final outcome!
