How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
The growing of natural fibres-such as wicker-is deeply virtuous: it helps to diversify the forest cover, it requires limited inputs-even in water, little maintenance, and its CO 2 emissions are minimal. Their uses in basketry date back to the Neolithic period, and even probably before. People around the world have employed braiding technics and bas...
The first traces of basketry date back to the Sumerian's period (4000 years BC). From now on, these braiding techniques have been used to craft vernacular shelters, clothes, furniture and tools. However, they are uncommonly used in architecture and are generally limited to non-structural filling elements. To our knowledge, the Baya project develope...
Featured Application: This study focuses on the evaluation of the critical buckling load for elastic gridshells by testing scale models or using dynamic relaxation. After discussing the differences between numerical and physical results at various scales, the study proposes to evaluate the resistance of certain gridshell typologies that cannot be...
Through the study of the Baya's weaverbird nest, we carried out our research on the braided hanging shells. It is a new experimental structure that is effective in terms of low use of materials. We developed a parametrical dynamic relaxion solution to calculate principal fields of stress on every type of the hanging shell project. Thanks to experim...
