Vasily Sitnikov is an architectural researcher and PhD candidate at the Royal Technical University, School of Architecture,Stockholm. In his research he pursues innovation by using ice as a formwork for concrete casting. His research interest originated as a Master student at the Städelschule Architecture Class, Frankfurt and continued within the InnoChain Research Training Network.

Ice Formwork system is a set of original solutions developed to challenge environmental and economic performance of concrete prefabrication. Essentially, Ice Formwork is an alternative material base for production of custom-made concrete elements, facilitated through use of regular ice as the moulding material, climate-control fabrication environment, and all possible tools of robotic material processing, subtractive and additive.

During the event, Vasily will present and discuss his work as a developing body of work within contemporary architectural design research.

The lecture will be held on the dMA YouTube Channel.
