The Bartlett School of Architecture


Bartlett graduate exhibits at The Building Centre

14 May 2018

Ivo Tedbury will be exhibiting his award-winning proposal ‘Semblr’ at The Building Centre from 18 May until 9 June.

Semblr project by Ivo Tedbury

Recent Architecture MArch graduate Ivo’s work will serve as a prelude to the Digital Turn exhibition, which explores how we can better imagine, create and build living spaces by combining the physical and digital worlds. 

Ivo developed Semblr whilst studying at The Bartlett and was awarded a commendation at the RIBA President’s Medals 2017. The project suggests a recyclable material system of timber and steel bricks that are designed with algorithms and assembled robotically. Using this system, Ivo proposes a new model of ‘social housing’ that would be sustainable and run with almost no marginal costs thanks to the fully automated construction process. 

Ivo will speak about the theory and technologies behind his system at a lunchtime talk on 24 May 2018.
