A workshop titled 'Nexorades with Composite Materials' was held at the Grands Ateliers de l'Isle d 'Abeau with students of the school Architecture of Grenoble, France. The objective of the workshop was to create nexorades with sandwich panels. The design criteria for the workshop included simple and lowtech design connections and minimizing the number of different type of plates. The material used to create the sandwich panels was GFRP (Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer)for the skins and an alveolar thermoplastic for the core. The panels were created on mould and the GFRP was placed with a hand layup technique. A vacuum bag was tried for the mould but this technique was difficult to set up properly because of the lack of tools available.
