Addressing both architects and engineers, this dissertation by Matthias Rippmann presents a new framework for the form ﬁnding and design of fabrication geometry of discrete, funicular structures in the early design phase. It introduces a new methodology for structurally-informed design of curved surface architecture.
This master thesis by Sebastian de Wit is the result of a graduation project where research is conducted on parametric design of segmental timber shell structures. Throughout this report, the design process as well as the development of a parametric model to design, analyze and fabricate segmental timber shell structures is described.
This pavilion by Milad Showkatbakhsh, Chritopher Testa, Chris Yu and Shayna Cooper explores the limits of composite aluminum panels. With the use of parametric modelling and digital fabrication, a unitized panel system was designed that aggregates to operate as a larger system of surfaces.
