Article
Pure-compression shells have been the central topic in the form-finding of shells. This study investigated tension-compression mixed-type shells by utilizing a NURBS-based isogeometric form-finding approach that analyses Airy stress functions to expand the possible plan geometry. A complete set of smooth version graphic statics tools is provided to...

Masonry arch bridges for rail transport in Europe are still in use 200 years after they were built. Traditional masonry bridges support granular fill which in turn supports the roadway or railway tracks spreading the load on the arch. The stiffness requirements for high speed rail bridges mean that they have to be heavy, in which case masonry bridg...

Geometry links the art of building and the physics of space-time. Mathematical breakthroughs in geometry have led to new ways of designing our structures and our ability to visualise and describe the world, phenomena in nature and the universe. However, in contemporary architecture and structural engineering, a more profound understanding of geomet...

This paper describes and discuss the design, fabrication and assembly of an asymptotic gridshell built of plywood laths. The overall question concerns how geometry, structural action, and efficient production can interplay and inform spatial design. The environment is a two-day workshop where architects, engineers and researchers with specializatio...
Data
Parametric model for the geodesic gridshell that goes from the form to the production drawings. Contains a grasshopper file(.gh) and a rhino file (.3dm).
Presentation

Presentation of the paper "Design, fabrication and assembly of a geodesic gridshell in a student workshop" at the annual symposium of IASS 2018 in Boston.
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper describes the design, fabrication and assembly of an 11x11 m gridshell built of plywood laths during a two and a half day workshop in a new undergraduate course about parametric design and digital fabrication. The question was how to use full-scale prototyping to summarize and integrate the learning outcomes in this course. A challenge w...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
We present two separate strategies for generating brick patterns on free form shells and vaults using geodesic coordinates. The brickwork is specified by a surface on which there is a geodesic coordinate system satisfying the condition for a constant distance between bed joints. The first strategy integrates the generation of the geodesic coordinat...
Thesis
Full-text available
In this thesis, we propose a strategy for generating patterns for brick laying on compression free-form shells. The strategy is based on geodesic coordinates which guarantees an equal length between its coordinates curves, which for brickwork means an equal spacing between the bed joints. The implementation is done for polar geodesic coordinates us...
