Fira Barcelona, Gran Via Venue
The Pavilion of Innovation 2015 in Beyond Building Barcelona, curated by IaaC | Fab Lab Barcelona, presents new ideas and construction paradigms emerging from international excellence in research and pilot projects, forming the basis of future buildings and cities. Novel and reactive materials, advanced digital/robotic manufacturing techniques and responsive environments are the key topics presented, towards shaping the future of the building industry.
A limited number of pioneer academic research projects and prototypes from the BEYOND | CALL FOR PROJECTS, as well as professional built projects and prototypes will be exposed within the Pavilion of Innovation 2015. This includes Enrico Dini’s D-Shape, Philippe Block’s Rib-stiffened funicular floor system and Neri Oxman’s Silk Pavilion.
The aim is to offer a matchmaking space for research and innovative projects to meet construction and technology companies, constructing the bridge connecting innovation with the industry and businesses, and bringing possibilities for projects to be implemented in real world developments.
The Pavilion of Innovation 2015 will also host events such as a symposium and round table where pioneer architects and designers will be discussing about the future technologies and innovation in construction, as well as hosting a series of educational workshops open for all professionals and students, on wearable technology, internet of things, digital fabrication, robotic construction technology and aerial robotics.
The symposium will take place on Saturday, 23th of May, where each speaker presents its innovative work and ideas in short sessions. Among other thematic 4D printing, digital fabrication, self-sufficient buildings and distributed manufacturing will be discussed during this event.
Several international workshops will take place in the Pavilion of innovation 2015 from 19th-23rd of May. Varying from 1 day seminars to 5 days workshops participants can learn about wearable technology and computational design, digital fabrication, internet of things, robotic printing with clay and data mapping using aerial robotics.
