"Dynamic fabrication processes"
The production of non‐standard concrete structures are generally done with rigid static cast, where in the concrete is placed and cured, before the formwork is removed. In order to produce non‐standard geometries within a casting process it therefore implies the production of an individualized formwork for each of the elements produced. These formworks are in many cased only used once, this creates a large amount of waste and energy consume, hence a process which doesn´t promise efficiency at all. This lecture will focus on research projects exploring a dynamic process of fabrication, which aims towards releasing the production of non‐standard concrete structures from the need of a static cast.
Ena Lloret Kristensen is a Research Fellow at the Chair for Architecture and Digital Fabrication in Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule (ETH) Zürich since 2010. Her research work focuses on the capability and efficiency of existing and approved concrete construction techniques, which in conjunction with digital fabrication envision an innovative fabrication approach: releasing the construction of complex concrete structures from the need for custom made formwork.

After graduating in Copenhagen, Ena gained professional experience in Holland, Germany and Austria. Her role included project leader for several architectural competitions and planning projects. She has received a number of awards for international competition work in collaboration with Erwin Stättner & Robert Diem. Ena was invited architect under the name NO 45, for the international project CASA Portuguesa in Silves Portugal. Her interest in academic teaching and research led Ena to participate in the DRL Master studies at the London School AA, funded by a grant from Danish Architects Association and a public Grant from the Ministry of Education of Denmark. As a result of her master’s thesis, Ena gained a position as a research fellow at the ETH Zurich.
