Form-finding to fabrication of super-thin anisotropic gridshell

Naboni, Roberto;

Full Article:

The paper discusses the process of computational design, analysis and fabrication for a lightweight super-thin gridshell structure. Digital form-finding based on Particle Spring Systems is used to define a compression-based shape, which is discretized through a parametric process into box-shaped components with embedded assembly and structural logics. Strategies to maximize the behaviour of anisotropic construction boards, double curved forms and assembly precision are described. Results are thoroughly documented to highlight the potential of the approach to rapidly build temporary gridshell structures.
