[APPLIED] FOREIGN AFFAIRS is a lab at the Institute of Architecture of the University of Applied Arts Vienna that investigates spatial, infrastructural, environmental, and cultural phenomena in rural and urban sub-Saharan Africa. Projects are based on an interdisciplinary, trans-cultural, and experimental approach.

The publication documents three of these labs, which took place between 2011 and 2015 in Ghana and the DR Congo. The resulting projects include OTHER ARCHITECTURE, OTHER PLANNING, and OTHER ARTISTIC RESEARCH, which were generated within transdisciplinary teams and evolved out of very experimental working processes. The work and its impact is presented in its respective context and embedded in a wider discourse: renowned experts write about and discuss the intrinsic topics at hand.

With essays  from and conversations with Hannah le Roux, Chief Salifu Mahama Tampurie, Baerbel Mueller, Ann Cassiman, Bernhard Sommer, Joe Osae-Addo, Benrhard Akoi-Jackson, Gerald Bast, Christin Forstinger, Sir Black,  Victoria Oyone, Kofi Setordji, Awo Mana Asiedu, Petra Kron, Barbara Putz-Plecko, Klaus Bollinger, Robert Vierlinger, Franz Sam, Jörg Stamm, Manora Auersperg, Kwasi Ohene-Ayeh, Daniel Aschwanden, Neville Mars, Mae-ling Lokko, Akwasi McLaren, Dorine Mokha, Faustin Linyekula, Nikolaus Gansterer, Filip de Boeck, Sammy Baloji, Wolf D.

Lecture The Making of...Sequential Roof, ETH Zurich, January 11,7pm

“The Making of the Sequential Roof, Arch_Tec_Lab, ETH Zurich”
Aleksandra Anna Apolinarska,
Gramazio Kohler Research, ETH Zurich

January 11, 2017, 7 pm
at the Angewandte, Seminarraum 3,Top floor

The Arch_Tec_Lab of the Institute of Technology in Architecture (ITA), ETH Zurich, is covered with a novel timber roof structure, developed and planned at the Chair of Architecture and Digital Fabrication (Gramazio Kohler Research). The 2,308 m2 free-form roof structure consists of 168 trusses assembled robotically from nearly 50,000 unique timber elements in a fully automated process. The complex geometry required a digital planning process that combined design, structural analysis and fabrication details into an integrated computational workflow.

Aleksandra Anna Apolinarska of Gramazio Kohler Research at ETH Zürich was responsible for the project during the specialist design and construction phase. She is an architect with a passion for geometrically complex shapes, computer-aided design and digital fabrication. She gained her professional experience in renowned offices across Europe, including Foster+Partners, designtoproduction, LAVA and UNStudio. By example of the “Sequential Roof” she will explain how innovative computational design and manufacturing methods not only change the logistics of timber construction but also lead to novel architectural solutions.
