Colonna Curva: A case study on curved folding for the production of architectural components

Hemmerling, Marco; Mazzucchi, Alessio;

Full Article:

The research presented in the paper focuses on computational folding. Besides the well-known straight folded structures, like the classical Miura fold, curved folding opens up more complex spatial configurations and delivers at the same time more performative structural effects, as the bended surfaces resulting from the curved crease folding enhance the overall-stiffness of the structure. Against this background the paper discusses the potential of curved folding techniques for the design and fabrication of architectural components. The findings are illustrated in a case study that documents the prototypical realization of a curved column in scale 1:1.
