Master's Course Architecture Stegreif
This course will deal with the construction and fabrication of an example of a transformable mobile construction. As an extension of the previous Trako courses on folding and transformable constructions, we will make a demonstration construction of a spherical mobile protection shield. In this course the participants will acquire the knowledge of fabrication and assembly of hinges, cutting of flat panels to compose a spherical folding and the development of a scissor system.
The start and coordination of the course will take place in April. The work will be compact on a weekly basis, and will take place in April-May. The meeting days will be Fridays from 10 to 12 h.
