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

This publication comprises 24 technical papers offered 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, with a view to support open up new horizons for architecture.

The publication examines geometric facets fascinated by architectural layout, starting from preliminary belief to ultimate fabrication. It makes a speciality of 4 key themes: utilized geometry, structure, computational layout, and in addition perform within the kind of case stories. moreover, the e-book additionally gains algorithms, proposed implementation, experimental effects, and illustrations.

Overall, the e-book provides either theoretical and useful paintings associated with new geometrical advancements in structure. It gathers the varied elements of the modern architectural developments that push the construction envelope in the direction of loose shape with the intention to reply to a number of present layout challenges.

With its creation of novel computational algorithms and instruments, this ebook will end up an incredible source to either beginners to the sector in addition to complex practitioners.

The production consists of only three different processes: drilling for fixation and cable holes and two sided inlay pockets (Fig. 15) to define the inserts for the glass panels for the vertical assembly. Then in order to get the overall shape closer to the original reference surface S the wood edges were chamfered with an angle following the local tangent to S at every single point of the curve C. Due to the machine head size it was cut using the five axis following two different positions (Fig.

Fig. 3 Coreless winding; (a) two fibres connecting four non-planar points; (b) fibres deforming under the tension of subsequently wound fibres; (c, d) anticlastic curvature induced by helicoidal winding consequence of material capacities, which requires a simultaneous development of both architectural morphology and fabrication. The geometry of the fibre-based elements is strongly defined by material properties since it is the result of the interaction between subsequently applied fibres. For the generation of the characteristic column-like structure found in the beetle elytra role model a coreless winding method was chosen and further developed, in order to continually minimise the necessary formwork for the production of double-curved FRP geometries.

10 Left: deformations prevented by casting rig and lid. Centre: APET mould placed in rig. Right: an algorithm seeks for the optimal positioning in the casting frame orientations of the component in the casting rig (Fig. 10, Right). Additional flaps connecting the mould to the casting frame are defined and added, including the positioning of fixing points (Fig. 10, Centre). A lid connecting all three wrist points eliminates displacement around the centre. These modifications reduce tolerances to C/ 1 mm as opposed to C/ 6 mm measured in earlier experiments.
