This thesis by Dragos-Iulian Naicu, upon reviewing the design and construction processes of previous timber gridshells, puts forward a structural model that aims to represent the true nature and specifics of single and double- layered timber gridshells.
German designers Marco Hemmerling and Ulrich nether have produced the ‘generico chair’, a product based on generative and additive manufacturing technologies. the process for developing the form involved a detailed analysis of structural performance.
The present thesis by Daniel Akesson aims to integrate structural feedback with geometric modeling. The user interfaces of conceptual design tools should be interactive and agile enough to follow the designer’s iterative workﬂow.
The goal of this research by Lukáš Kurilla is to raise interest of architects in structural behavior of design in its conceptual phase. Therefore, this research deals with the development of a middleware – a bridging tool between the ﬁnite element (FE) solver (OOFEM) and the architectural modeller (Rhino3D).
