Freeform Modelling

In the fabrication of organic free-form shapes in architecture one is constantly faced with specific planning and design challenges. This paper examines these problems as well as possible solutions for the design of a completed and built prototype using the example of an organically shaped pavilion made of glass fibre reinforced plastic modules.

This paper by Jan-Ruben Fischer describes which adjustments to the original design were required to take the step from “digital physicality” to “physical digitality” to realize a constructive and economically successful implementation. The solutions discussed combine modern digital software methods such as parametric design with innovative 3D modelling principles.
