- p_009 structural studiesThe project’s ambition is twofold: First, it serves as a catalogue for a wide variety of common structural systems as well as their respective capacities. Second, it deliberately focuses not only on the structural performance but also on the spatial capabilities of each system, thereby investigating methods, which deliberately go beyond the constraints commonly imposed by production and/or financial necessities.
Each of the structural strategies is tested on an arbitrarily generated, three dimensionally curved surface. The studies encompass the structural/spatial analysis and optimization of regular-, semi-regular and variable geometries, gradually changing tessellation patterns, structurally- and/or fabrication-optimized methods of surface-subdivision as well as flat-, spatial and woven structures.
