The novel fibre-composite creating things produced at the College of Stuttgart are now entering the software stage in architectural follow, after the success in a style and design competition for the new schooling and innovation centre Texoversum in Reutlingen. The façade things will be produced by FibR, a spin-off from the College of Stuttgart.

Texoversum, an schooling, exploration and innovation centre for the cross-chopping technological innovation of textiles, is currently being founded on the campus of Reutlingen College of Applied Sciences. Allmann Sattler Wappner Architekten, Menges Scheffler Architekten and Jan Knippers Ingenieure are dependable for the style and design as a team. They ended up awarded initially prize in the similar style and design competition and subsequently commissioned with the realisation of the creating comprising pretty much 3,000 square metre of area for different person teams.

The architectural notion is dependent on a multifaceted assessment of the topic of textiles. The style and design concept is reflected each structurally in the inner interweaving of functions and in the creating envelope that makes its possess identity. The special façade built of carbon and glass fibres, the initially of its kind to be executed in this way, signifies the progressive electric power and long run viability of fibre-dependent supplies and textile approaches. In a robotic winding process produced at the Institute for Computational Layout and Building (ICD – Achim Menges) and the Institute of Creating Structures and Structural Layout (ITKE – Jan Knippers) at the College of Stuttgart, every unique facade component can be separately tuned to its functional needs.

Starting off from 3 essential modules, the things remodel by themselves according to their orientation towards the sunshine and variety a special, multi-layered visual appeal. The things are entirely self-supporting and do not demand a supporting framework. Their staggered arrangement allows cost-free views. In addition to the functional needs as external shading devices and guard railing, the façade fulfills aesthetic and representative requires and makes a unique creating that expresses textiles as a driving force for technological innovation. The façade things will be produced by the corporation FibR, a spin-off from the College of Stuttgart.
