TETHOK | Textile Tectonics for Wood Construction

Wood be­comes tex­tile

BAU KUNST ERFIN­D­EN ini­ti­ates the trans­dis­ci­pli­nary re­search net­work TETHOK | Tex­tile Tec­ton­ics for Wood Con­struc­tion with a to­tal of 7 de­part­ments at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Kas­sel. The group de­vel­ops tex­tile tec­ton­ics for wood con­struc­tion. We in­vesti­gate the de­sign, shap­ing, si­m­u­la­tion, man­u­fac­ture, and con­struc­tion of lightweight load-bear­ing struc­tu­ral com­po­nents made of wood-based cont­in­u­ous-fiber tex­tiles.

ARC Cen­tre of Ex­cel­lence in Exci­ton Sci­ence

The ARC Cen­tre of Ex­cel­lence in Exci­ton Sci­ence brings to­gether in­ter­na­tio­n­al re­search­ers to dis­cov­er and use new ways to source en­er­gy. The goal of this co­op­er­a­tion is to dis­cov­er and de­vel­op new ways to har­ness sun­light for en­er­gy stor­age; de­vel­op more en­er­gy ef­fi­cient de­vices for light gen­er­a­tion; and al­so look at op­ti­cal sen­sors for se­cu­ri­ty and en­vi­ron­men­tal ap­pli­ca­tions. BAU KUNST ERFIN­D­EN de­vel­ops the in­te­gra­tion of dye-sen­si­tized so­lar cells (DSCs) in­to pre­fab­ri­cat­ed con­crete seg­ments. Ar­eas of ap­pli­ca­tion in­clude ar­chi­tec­tu­ral and prod­uct de­sign, as well as dig­i­tal fab­ri­ca­tion and con­struc­tion.

HOT lab

Wood-Tex­tile Lab­o­ra­to­ry

In the HOT lab we re­search tex­tiles made of solid wood. The cont­in­u­ous fil­a­ment made of solid wood is de­vel­oped here. We de­sign pro­cess­ing equip­ment for wood thread pro­duc­tion and fin­ish­ing and build dob­by and jac­quard weav­ing pro­cess­es adapt­ed to the wood thread with a weav­ing width of 80 cm and any length. The HOT Lab re­search­es the in­ter­ac­tion of de­sign-form­ing in­flu­enc­ing vari­ables of the wood thread and wood thread fab­rics. The in­ter­re­la­tion­ships be­tween the tech­ni­cal fac­tors of pro­duc­tion and pro­cess­ing as well as the tech­ni­cal and aes­thet­ic func­tions of ma­te­rial and form are in­vesti­gat­ed. The HOT lab re­search­es the oc­cur­rence of the raw ma­te­rial wil­low wood in Eu­rope.
