HYBRIDa is incredibly proud to announce you that we already have won our second European Framework Program for Research. The FP7 DEMOPROJECT will allow us to continue the about to finish FP7 CAPACITIES that we won two years ago, and reach the industrial reliability of the HYPERMEMBRANE. 2.000.000 € of European founding will be shared with different RTDs (research technological and Development centers) and companies to finish the industrial development and the digital solver (Software) of the HYPERMEMBRANE. HYPERMEMBRANE will become very soon a real adaptable system in the market to produce an immense variety of complex structural morphologies in architecture through a modular standardized driven by a software system.
We want to thank the current partners of the HYPERMEMBRANE FP7 CAPACITYES
CIMNE, ASCAMM, DCP, TAO, BUILDAIR.
We want to congratulate the new group of partners entering at the HYPERMEMBRANE FP7 DEMOPROJECT
CIMNE, ASCAMM, DCP, BUILDAIR, EUROCONT, TEMME OBERMEIER.
We ALSO want to thank very much to the people involved on the project during the last ten years.

HYBRIDa is very proud to announce you that after several years and different attempts, we already have won the 7th Framework Programme for Research: CAPACITIES. Research for the SMEs.
1.400.000 € of European founding will be shared with different technological centers to put forward the development of the HybGrid (Digital and physical components) for a time based adaptable structure through material intelligence.
We want to thank very much to the people involved on the project during the last eight years.

Being involved in such a research it is not easy, our life as architects isn’t letting too much space for real research, and there are not too many opportunities to achieve real financial support for doing so. Usually it becomes a matter of personal effort, seeking something that does not seem totally necessary for the day to day life. For this reason we are absolutely sure that the unique way to succeed on this arduous task is thanks to the continuous help and support from the most interesting , challenging and diverse people you can meet.
We are sincerely very grateful to:
Mike Weinstock, Michael Hensel, for opening the first door to find our actual condition of architects. and for giving to us a piece of his knowledge.
