Agata Kocirova / MARKETPLACE IN OSTRAVA – Market within market

The market has existed since the time people started trading. In the Czech Republic, and in Ostrava, the history of markets was influenced by a number of circumstances during the past which led into the present situation in the city.

In 2015, the market hall in the center of Moravian Ostrava was closed and demolished and since then the 3rd largest city in the Czech Republic does not have its own permanent marketplace. Despite the fact that years have passed, the topic is still relevant and the interest of citizens to create such a place in the city is visible and growing.

“Marketplace in Ostrava – Market within market“ is a project dealing with the topic of the marketplace - place of various kinds of exchange, that tries to find answers to questions based on the collected information from interviews, literature studies, field studies, newspaper articles and design proposal.

Main questions:

Does the market still have a place in the city of 2023?

What should the nowadays market be? (in terms of form, program, aesthetics)

What can it offer to the people, to the city, apart from selling fresh and quality food?

Where in Ostrava should it be located?

Amelia Henry / 4D-Printing Architectural Textiles: Programmable Self-Supporting Structures

3D printing has already begun to revolutionize the world of architecture, forcing a consideration of the functions of materials and their relationship with emerging technologies.This research project investigates the architectural viability of large scale FDM 3D printing of thermoplastics directly onto stretched textiles, which retract and warp into 3D structures upon release.

The project documents the development of an experimental fabrication process for large scale programmable structural textiles, testing aspects such as adhesion, scale, materiality, and textile stretching. The fabrication process required adapting the workflow to different types of 3D printers as well as building and programming both the hardware and software of a 3D printing extruder attachment for an ABB IRB 2400 robot arm.

The results from the fabrication testing were used to inform a series of small-scale prototypes. These prototypes were consolidated into a comprehensive design system that accounts for programmable material behaviors, considering factors such as textile material, filament material, line thickness, and the design of the printed geometry. The project culminated in the design and fabrication of a collection of large-scale prototypes. Each prototype features pre-programmed structural warping informed by the material behavior design system.
