The main reason to use cork in this project was lightness?

Yes. Cork is very lightweight and, in this case, that's what I found particularly interesting. But from the moment that this solution was developed – which also has great insulating capacity and structural capacity of resistance – it has become possible to apply this material in a wide array of different situations.

Structural damping design

Structural damping provides a means of converting mechanical energy (vibrations) in to low-grade heat, if correctly implemented it can significantly reduce noise.Thickness of the CLD is defined by the tank wall, in an optimized design the CLD thickness should be similar to the tank wall thickness; too thin will have mi…

Objective

The objective is to create an empty space between the various elements of the structure so that, whenever they contract or dilate, due to weather conditions or thermal variations, these movements do not cause structural damage. To ensure optimal performance, the gaps between the elements should be filled with a pre-for…

You used cork for your project “Vertical Grounds”. Why did you choose this raw material and how did you apply it?

The ecological role of cork and its primary molecule, suberin is to serve as a protective barrier for the tree’s roots and other vascular systems. Cork is anti-microbial and hydrophobic and therefore seemed to be an ideal natural material to replace plastic in greenwall systems. After experimenting with cork at UCL’s B…
