Abstract

The research-prototype is a 4 x 5 x 2m, “topologically optimized” concrete shell that was designed and built in ten days. The prototype and this ensuing paper aim to extend the rich legacy of form-finding to adequately represent the complexities of scale, digital design systems and delivery mechanisms of contemporary architectural practice. They explore synergies in early design between architecture, structural engineering, and manufacturing.
