Lecture: The Evolution of Work
@ 19.30, IAAC Auditorium
Open to the Public
Jelle Feringa is co-founder of EZCT Architecture & Design research and Odico formwork robotics, he is currently finishing his PhD thesis at Hyperbody, TU Delft. The work of EZCT is part of the permanent collection of the Pompidou Center and the FRAC Orléans collection. Recent expositions on the work of the office include “Naturalizing Architecture”, Archilab, Orléans,“Out of Hand”, MAD museum, New York (2013-2014), the “Multiverses Créatives”, Centre Pompidou, Paris (2012) and Salone del Mobile, Milan (2012).
Jelle lives in Rotterdam, where his robot workshop is located in the harbour. His current research is focused on the development of original robotic fabrication processes for architecture, considering materialization an inherent aspect of architectural design. These efforts have accumulated in an investor backed startup, Odico formwork robotics, based in Denmark. Recent fabrication experiments include the exploration of stereotomy in vaulting structures and cutting large marble volumes “traites” to which end he developed a large robot diamond wire saw in Carrara, Italy. Jelle is also currently collaborating with IAAC.
