Summary

This master-course focussed on the research into the characteristics of a specific building material, in this case cardboard. Pioneers as Shigeru Ban realize amazing structures with for example cardboard tubes and the research group at TU Delft searches for new applications of this versatile material. Students are challenged to come up with new structural concepts and possibilities for the material by research and design.
