A further development of the coreless winding method allows the minimisation of the necessary formwork and the generation of an adaptable and reusable frame for a component-based system. On a structural level, the development of a double-layered system leads to an enhancement of the construction’s structural capacity. 1 Bottom Up Biological Investigation The ICD/ITKE Research Pavilion 2013–2014 continues the successful series of multidisciplinary research projects through collaboration with biologists from Tübingen University and imaging specialists from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, resulting in an open-ended biomimetic bottom-up process.

Morphological principles of natural organisms are abstracted and transferred into architectural applications for their performative geometries and functional integration. Biological evolutionary processes offer a remarkable example for the integration of multiple requirements into the morphogenetic process. As observed by biological research, natural systems do not evolve as singular optimisation solutions, but rather negotiate between numerous and often conflicting factors, providing a compromise that can fulfil a multitude of requirements, contrary to conventional optimisation procedures (Knippers and Speck 2012).
