    Reciprocalshell Demonstrator Construction started

    After completing our first reciprocalshell demonstrator in December 2022 in collaboration with Chalmers University, a second demonstrator was planned for a central location in the city of Augsburg. While the first demonstrator was built with a span of 7 meters, the second demonstrator is planned with a span of 15 meters. While the production and…
