Use of Hygroscopic Responsive Wood Prototype for Teaching Performative Architecture


Klein Taparello, Gladys Ilka; Turazzi Luciano, Patrícia; Verzola Vaz, Carlos Eduardo;


This research presents a method for teaching performative architecture notions to undergraduate students through a practical approach with low cost hygroscopic responsive bilayer prototypes made of wood veneer and aluminum foil. The research occurred in two phases, the first focusing on studying and testing the properties of responsive materials based on wood, and the second, the development and application of two workshops about performative architecture and responsive materials with undergraduate students of an architecture course. This paper shows the results of the workshops, which achieved their goals of stimulating the students and passing knowledge about innovative technologies in architecture.
