Striatus was designed to place material only where needed, significantly reducing its environmental footprint. With no reinforcement and using dry assembly without binders, it can be repurposed repeatedly. Striatus opens up a world of possibilities with concrete in a design that is structurally informed, fabrication-aware and ecologically responsible. Material is precisely placed to build more with less. Being built for the “Time Space Existence” exhibition, hosted by the European Cultural Centre (ECC) during the Venice Architecture Biennale 2021. Project by the Block Research Group (BRG) at ETH Zurich and Zaha Hadid Architects Computation and Design Group (ZHACODE), in collaboration with incremental3D, made possible by Holcim

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR

We are looking to work with innovative companies who are either active in the construction industry or have solutions that could be applied to the industry 

Specifically we are interested in the following business activities

 

1# Concrete 2.0

Enhance the properties of cement-based materials beyond the core value of structural integrity 

Weight reduction, noise reduction, thermal properties, light reflectivity-translucency, porosity, environmental footprint

 

2# Construction waste

Rethink the design and process of making and delivery cement and concrete for avoiding, minimizing, reusing the waste from quarries to building sites. Propose alternative to tackle resources scarcity

Feedstock materials, water, energy and product waste, modularity

 

3# Real time quality control

Monitor, test, evaluate and adjust the quality of materials across the supply chain: from raw materials to product delivery

Sensors from raw materials to product delivery or truck sensors to monitor workability, air, water and make automated adjustements

 

4# CO2 neutrality

Measure, track and develop solutions to move towards neutrality

Alternative raw materials, industrial by-products, sensors, analytics, software models and new process

 

5# Real time product demand forecast at site

Develop and apply accurate, real time prediction of demand for product quantities and types by job site

Data collection, processing and input across the value chain

 

6# Monitor performance

Monitor performance characteristics of concrete delivery at construction sites and in prefabrication

Sensors about temperature, humidity, pH, structural resilience, durability

 

7# Automation

Increase use of automation to infrastructure (e.g. ports) and to related construction projects as painting

I.O.T., 5G, digital solution, 3D printing solutions, robots and other technologies

 

8# Infrastructure & buildings

Develop and use software models / digitalized visualization of the construction phases in infrastructure (such as roads and bridge) and building projects
