Metamaterial computation and fabrication of auxetic patterns for architecture

Auxetic Patterns

The paper by Roberto Naboni and Lorenzo Mirante investigates the potential of auxetics in architectural applications by means of computational design and additive manufacturing. This class of metamaterials expresses interesting behaviour related to the unusual characteristics of a negative Poisson’s ratio.
