    Keep It Civil 201 - Adaptive Building Structures

    19:04

    Keep it Civil is back for series two, and we're joined by EngD Researcher Gennaro Senatore to discuss the design philosophy of adaptive building structures he developed here at UCL with the Centre for Urban Sustainability and Resilience (USAR) and Expedition Engineering, with the work sponsored by EPSRC. Unlike conventional structures, adaptive structures are designed to change their shape to prevent excessive movement caused by loads, which allows for super-slender structures that look great and use much less material and less whole-life energy. Follow Gennaro (https://twitter.com/g_senatore), Expedition Engineering (https://twitter.com/EXP_Eng) and USAR (https://twitter.com/UCL_USAR) on Twitter. Find out more about adaptive structures and see the truss mentioned in the podcast at a special exhibition at the London Building Centre until 2nd September 2016 (http://www.buildingcentre.co.uk/exhibitions/adaptive-structures). Find out more about Gennaro's work (http://www.ucl.ac.uk/usar/who-we-are/cdt-students/gennaro-senatore) and see the adaptive responsive truss in action (https://vimeo.com/groups/315224).
