Pallarés and Rule Receive Research Award at 14th Spanish Architecture and Urbanism Biennial

Assistant Professors of Architecture and Practice Ana Morcillo Pallarés and Jonathan Rule received the award for research in the category of product/prototype at the opening of the 14th Spanish Architecture and Urbanism Biennial in Santander, Spain. The awards reflect technological progress and its application in architecture, urban planning and the elaboration of prototypes produced and sold by the industry. The research being recognized is from their 2018 Research Through Making Project, CCFF: Catenary Concrete Funicular Formwork, which explores the use of physical catenary and funicular modeling in conjunction with the precision of robotic concrete extrusion for the development of pattern-based thin concrete screens.
