Lunch talk at UNI:Lokal | Clay and steel for innovative building constructions

15 minutes with Hilke Manot and Mobin Moussavi (Faculty of Structural Design in the Department of Architecture - Urban Planning - Landscape Planning)

The lecture presents the potential of the recyclable materials clay and steel for innovative building constructions, which are being developed in two research projects. "FerrumLutum" reinterprets historical cap ceilings and constructs a ceiling system from clay and steel with the smallest possible ecological footprint, which can replace conventional reinforced concrete ceilings in the building of the future. Steel is also at the heart of the "S3 - Sustainable structural skin" research project, which uses the material for lightweight constructions. The steel construction elements developed are both high-performance and material-saving.
