Assistant Research Professor and Design Innovation Fellow Christopher A. Battaglia was one of six design fellows for the 2019 Exhibit Columbus. Battaglia has been researching techniques to spatialize concrete through additive manufacturing and digital fabrication techniques. His completed structure, titled DE|stress, is a vaulted concrete lattice shell that provides an area for collaboration and community gathering. The material qualities are created during the fabrication process with striations of layered concrete and resulting textures emanating from the aggregate sub-surface on which each panel is printed.
