Chapter
Tensile structures represent a structural challenge for engineers where design modeling and calculations interact through complex processes. The use of linear processes to design and calculate such complex structures remains slow and inefficient. The aim of this research is to develop an interactive digital design tool that generates various typolo...
Article
de Der Entwurf von Delugan Meissl Associated Architects aus Wien für das Hyundai Automotive Motorstudio ging 2011 als Wettbewerbssieger hervor und dient künftig als Vorbild für internationale Standorte der Automobilmarke. Es wurde ein polygonal geformter, scheinbar schwebender Baukörper mit einer großzügig transparenten Fassade im Erdgeschoss entwo...
Presentation
Full-text available
Historically the design process of tensile structures is an analogue process which is based on intuition but characterized by being a linear process. Frei Otto used this process by setting up physical models in order to understand the structural behavior of such structures [1]. In the further years digital modelling and simulation has been develope...

This full-scale research pavilion exercises the application of timber and polymer concrete in architectural production (Figure 1). It attempts to develop and test a new hybrid construction technique using composite joints [as introduced in Schober et al. (2014)] within a modular geometric system and no need for formwork. The structure was designed...
Chapter
This paper speculates on the applicability of methods from artificial intelligence in generative design. In particular, Cppn-Neat as a recent concept is implemented and tested on an established platform for procedural design. The method evolves artificial neural networks and has proven successful in control of robotic navigation, cognition, and col...

This paper describes innovative aspects in the parametric structural design process of an automotive flagship store from competition to construction documentation. Novel approaches in design workflow and tight integration of architecture and engineering from the earliest phases on enable a strong correlation of design intent and realized artifact....
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Since the digital age, how we design has become as important as what we design. Never before there have been so many different techniques at our disposal, many of them with the ability to cross previously imagined frontiers. During the twentieth century, efforts to rethink the habitual practice of design are accompanying the process itself–the role...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Today architectural design processes are more and more influenced by parametric methods. As these allow for a multiplicity of alternatives, the design process can be enriched by computational optimization. Extensive research has shown the efficiency of optimization in engineering and design disciplines. Though, optimization is hereby rather a techn...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper describes the design process of a building project by Falkeis Senn Architects that introduces a novel system of efficient and economic, yet architecturally intriguing bearing structures for housing units. Instead of a traditional approach based on a regular grid of straight columns, inclined columns were introduced that drive through the...

Technical Report
Full-text available
Most of the current approaches to implement structural topology optimization use highly sophisticated computational environments and necessitate scripting skills. The aim of our research is a user-friendly implementation of Finite Element (FE)-and Bidirectional Evolutionary Structural Optimisation (BESO)-components for intuitive usage within the pa...
