This week, Rubin Spittka started his graduation thesis @ OMRT in collaboration with Finch Floating Homes. Rubin graduates from the master Civil Engineering, track Building Engineering, specialization in structural design.
The Thesis Subject is: “Design strategies for climate responsive, typhoon resilient, standard housing in Manila Bay area, the Philippines. Specified to local vernacular architecture by case study design and analyses”.
The goal of the research is to see whether currently used solutions for designing a vernacular house are efficient and effective. The approach is to use Parametric Engineering tools for optimisations and high standard analyses.
In short; the graduation will perform an integral analyses with high tech tools onto low tech housing solutions and see which ones work best for the Manila Bay area in the Philippines, keeping in mind that there are typhoons oftenly.
