We looked at several materials used in combination to create a wall system. The first layer is mainly used for creating the geometry, using the same method of pulling and tensioning. The material is then hardened to shape and would act as reinforcement in the wall. Layers of materials could be added to achieve different performative qualities within the wall.
Shotcrete reinforced with Barchip fibres would be used on the surface of the added materials. Barchip reinforced concrete has good compressive and tensile qualities. We plan on testing several materials for the next steps to get closer to a combination of materials that we can use to test at a 1:1 prototype.
