The School of Architecture of Aarhus organized the second edition of HARD CO(u)R(s)E DIGITAL, a set of workshops focused in digital technologies in a pre-holiday format.
The key factors in the CorkVault workshop, led by Pedro de Azambuja Varela and Tim Merritt, were the use of ICB (Insulation Cork Board), a 5-axis waterjet cutter and Grasshopper, so that a full-scale pavillion could be built. Various prototypes were built during the two-week course. The final vault took three full days, from design to fabrication and assembly.
