Students Work on Possible City Campus

The possibility of a partial university relocation to the former Sparkasse Bank building is being discussed and the science authority has ordered a feasibility study. The matter is something that students have considered. The "3D Modeling with FabLab Technologies" class invites you to an exhibition.

"In our course, we took the current discussion as an opportunity to work on the topic of the City Campus from a design perspective," says the head of the 3D Modeling with FabLab Technologies seminar, Dr. Bernard Robben. The result is a total of six models that, together with a 3D computer visualization, will be on display at FabLab Bremen, An der Weide 50a (former Post Office 5 at the train station), from March 25 to June 24, 2022.

The international students from the Computer Science and Digital Media degree programs programmed 3D models and then converted them into physical models using modern production machines such as 3D printers and laser cutters. One focus was on so-called parametric design, which enables the development of complex shapes and is used not only in architecture but also in aircraft construction. Among other things, it facilitates a more efficient construction method, but also a more interesting design of buildings. In this respect, it shows a closeness to nature’s construction methods (bionics) and to the Japanese art of origami.

The exhibition is a cooperation of the Digital Media in Education working group at the University of Bremen with FabLab Bremen e.V., a high-tech workshop open to all interested parties.
