By Philippe Block, Jan Knippers, Niloy J. Mitra, Wenping Wang

This e-book includes 24 technical papers provided on the fourth version of the Advances in Architectural Geometry convention, AAG 2014, held in London, England, September 2014. It bargains engineers, mathematicians, designers, and contractors perception into the effective layout, research, and manufacture of complicated shapes, so as to support open up new horizons for architecture.

The e-book examines geometric facets fascinated with architectural layout, starting from preliminary notion to ultimate fabrication. It makes a speciality of 4 key issues: utilized geometry, structure, computational layout, and likewise perform within the type of case experiences. furthermore, the e-book additionally good points algorithms, proposed implementation, experimental effects, and illustrations.

Overall, the ebook offers either theoretical and useful paintings associated with new geometrical advancements in structure. It gathers the various elements of the modern architectural developments that push the development envelope in the direction of unfastened shape in an effort to reply to a number of present layout challenges.

With its creation of novel computational algorithms and instruments, this booklet will end up a fantastic source to either novices to the sector in addition to complex practitioners.

The biomimetic investigation provided numerous morphological principles that primary defined the components geometries. Furthermore it supplied structurally efficient spatial arrangements that increased the geometrical complexity of the global construct. (continued) 44 S. Parascho et al. Through the development of a modular system, the dimension of the resulting structure was no longer limited to the robot reach, which demonstrates how the core-less winding method is applicable in large scale building implementations.

Therefore, all the surfaces were projected into the normal plane of the wind direction to be able to calculate the force per area of every shell element of the glass structure. The resulting forces can then be calculated using the karamba solver (Fig. 13). Application of Hybrid Glass-Timber Elements in Architecture 55 Fig. 13 Max displacement of the shell elements in karamba Using the genetic algorithm ‘galapagos’ in grasshopper, multiples of variations of the orientation of the panels could be calculated, using the maximal deflection of the whole structure as a fitness criteria.

The moulds are constructed from flat laser cut sheets by means of folding; following scored and dashed lines (Fig. 9). Despite the deliberate overall planarity and relatively shallow profile of the components, the 1–2 mm thick APET tends to deform due to the hydrostatic pressure of the concrete. The problems caused by this deformation (in order of importance) are: imprecision in the angles between arms; twisting of individual arms along the longitudinal axis, and; bulging of wrist points, which in turn drag the top endpoints inwards towards the centre (Fig.
