• And what's ATLAS?

    Par jagoda cupac, 22/11/17



    ATLAS project started as a chat over coffee between

    Alexander - architecture student eager to experiment-form-build, and

    Jagoda- PhD student in civil engineering looking to save some glass beams

    from certain death through experiments.  

    Few sketches and administrative applications later, ATLAS officially became

    a collaborative ENAC project

    with a support of Prof. Dietz (ALICE) and Prof. Nussbaumer (RESSLab).


    OBJECTIVE - question the common perception of glass as building material


    Playing with glass elements which resulted from Jagoda's research study,

    post-tensioned glass beams spanning 6 metres form a bench,

    maintaining all the structural details of the beam system visible.

    The glass is supported by 2 coloured UHPFRC blocks with a glossy surface (resembling glass?),

    a 'magic' finish resulting from Alexander's study on concrete casting.
