A tower called "Semiramis", consisting of five oversized wooden plant bowls, is being built in Zug, Switzerland. The structure, with an extraordinary design, will be built in the middle of the new innovation district called Tech Cluster Zug. The tower's columns are made of steel and the plant bowls, with a diameter of up to 33 ft, are made of cross-laminated timber panels. The team of Gramazio Kohler Research at the ETH Zurich, which conceptually designed the architectural timber structure, has also developed, together with various internal and external partners, a completely robot-supported assembly method for the precise positioning of the cross-laminated timber panels. Four robots working at the same time enable this method.

What is RWIND by Dlubal Software
RWIND Simulation is a stand-alone program for numerical simulations of wind flow (digital wind tunnel) around buildings or any other objects and generating wind loads, i.e. forces acting on these objects. This program was developed in cooperation with PC-Progress and CFD Support and can be used as a stand-alone application or as a complement to RFEM / RSTAB programs for static and dynamic analysis.
