ВА2 course, Technology module
On January 21 2019, a presentation of student projects took place at MARCH as part of the Anatomy of Structures workshop. The workshop was devoted to the study of famous architectural structures from the Gothic to the present, selected for research by the students themselves. The guest critic was Patrick Keating, chief engineer of the ARUP engineering bureau.

In the 1st semester, the study of each object began with a group of students with an analysis of its socio-economic prerequisites, as well as technological and construction features. Further, with the help of literary sources, a detailed 3-dimensional model of the structure was created in order to identify its basic structural principles.

Further, the structural analysis was performed to confirm the hypotheses and observations. Further, the shop drawings were prepared for the production of physical models made of wood and acrylic glass. The individual elements were produced from ready-made profiles or cut out on a CNC mill, and then assembled in a certain sequence, which, if possible, mastered the logic of assembling the structure during the construction process.
