  1. 1. Architectural aspects of massive timber : structural form and systems

    Author : Andreas Falk; []

    Abstract : The hypothesis of this thesis is that there are rational, technical and architectural gains to be made from interactively developed architectural and structural utilisation of massive timber plates. The aim is to study and describe architectural features of structural applications of massive timber and ways to utilise and develop timber-based plates in building applications by combining an architectural and a structural engineering perspective.

    Abstract : This thesis is an investigation into how meta-heuristic multi-objective optimisation processes (genetic algorithms driven by evolutionary solvers) can bring about materials-related advantages in architectural performance. It redefines the architect’s and engineer’s role from being designers of a singular space or structure to being designers of entire species of spaces, and discusses a particular method – anticipatory adaptive assemblages (AAA) – that allows such processes to produce many generations of design iterations that eventually yield individuals optimised for a set of predefined objectives.

  5. 5. The role of biobased building materials in the climate impacts of construction : Effects of increased use of biobased materials in the Swedish building sector

    Author : Diego Peñaloza; Magnus Wålinder; Martin Erlandsson; Andreas Falk; Johanna Berlin; Dimitris Athanassiadis; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LCA; timber buildings; timber bridges; biobased building materials; dynamic LCA; climate change mitigation; building stock; scenario analysis; biogenic carbon; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : A significant share of the global climate change impacts can be attributed to the construction sector. One mitigation strategy is increasing the use of biobased materials. Life cycle assessment (LCA) has been used to demonstrate the benefits of this, but forest complexities create uncertainty due to omission of key aspects. READ MORE
