CLOUDER is a concept modeling tool. It uses 3D capturing tools, scanning devices, and machine learning in order to provide opportunities to re-integrate physical design processes into digital design workflows. The potential of CLOUDER can be tested live at the Potenziale 3 exhibition in the spaces of the Tyrolian Architecture Center aut in Innsbruck.

"ALG-A Algae Architecture" is now part of the permanent exhibition at Ars Electronica Center in Linz. Alginate, in comparison to already commercially used microalgae, has a yet undiscovered potential in architecture. It is the structure-giving element of brown algae and part of their cell walls.

"MyCera" developped by Julian Jauk, Hana Vašatko, Lukas Gosch, Milena Stavric at the Institute of Architecture and Media, Graz University of Technology can be seen as part of the permanent exhibition at Ars Electronica Center in Linz. It had already been included in the MaterialLab presentation.

Julian Jauk contributed to the realization of an art project by Christoph Weber, currently on exhibit at Viennabiennale for Change 2021. Jauk provided a 3D scan of the original object, balanced the ingredients of the printing material - recycled paper, clay and limestone - and finally printed the object, which can be seen on the photo and at MAK Vienna until Ocotber 3rd.

Stefan Rutzinger and Kristina Schinegger - from the acd-project COMPUTATIONAL IMMEDIACY - have been invited to be part of the 17th Venice Architecture Biennale Italian Virtual Pavilion Sezione del Padiglione Italia. Curated by Tom Kovac, RMIT University and Alessandro Melis Portsmouth University titled CITYX Venice responds to ‘How will we live together?‘ curated by Hashim Sarkis MIT, organized by La Biennale di Venezia. The exhibition is open until the 21st of November 2021.

Styria’s industrial fair, Landesausstellung "Steiermark Schau", presents research from TU Graz/Institute of Architecture by showing a column made of “MyCera”, an innovative composite building material consisting of clay, cellulose, and mycelium. “MyCera” has been developed within our project Material- and Structurally Informed Freeform Structures.
