The XXL Workshop is an elective course held at the Faculty of Architecture of Delft University of Technology. It is concerned with the design, computation, engineering, and production of a horizontal large span building structure. This design process is done as a collaborative digital design in a multidisciplinary group of students in which each student has his/her own different responsibility. The collaborative digital design requires an integrated 3D approach based on BIM (Building Information Modeling) principles, performance analysis, and file to factory processes.

  1. hi team 3 - great track of notes on your blog - including this video, useful for us too – listening to it, I even doubt my comment was clear - for concept 1 I referred to 1c - for better defining and addressing the functions once it lands, I included problems such as the (huge) scale of the bowl that would land; reasoning on the markets, sport fields, expo place etc where it can land and of the numbers of users it would have in the different occasions/locations might give a picture - at last, if technically it is unfeasible to move entirely, I would subdiving it into parts (all movable or some of which fixed in the location) which keeps including the top ring (good luck martin with its weight – eventually, let us know asap if results give hopes).

    ps: if you go for 1a, I would discuss with Jelle/Henriette also what about possible reconfigurability of the roof itself - such that you do not have to simply move a huge balloon which remains always the same (on this I agree with Patrick), but eventually puzzle it into pieces for different flying assemblies (water proof?) - smaller zeppelin that get together providing different overall shapes - more flexible for different locations/uses.
