Shape memory technology and architecture. Miguel Callejas is a Postdoc, who has graduated as an architect and who already has 15 years of experience working in Sevilla. He came to Bochum in the framework of a European research project, which was initiated by the company Ingpuls and where he also works with our chair. The objective is to use shape memory technology in cases, where for example a pedestrian zone between buildings needs to be shaped from extensive sun impact (hot summers in southern Europe). The main research objective of Miguel Callelas is more general. He explores possibilities to enrich traditional architectural concepts with new dynamic elements which shape memory technology may be able to provide.
