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, in order to aid open up new horizons for architecture.

The booklet examines geometric facets interested in architectural layout, starting from preliminary belief to ultimate fabrication. It makes a speciality of 4 key issues: utilized geometry, structure, computational layout, and likewise perform within the type of case stories. furthermore, the ebook additionally positive aspects algorithms, proposed implementation, experimental effects, and illustrations.

Overall, the ebook provides either theoretical and sensible paintings associated with new geometrical advancements in structure. It gathers the varied elements of the modern architectural developments that push the development envelope in the direction of loose shape so one can reply to a number of present layout challenges.

With its advent of novel computational algorithms and instruments, this ebook will turn out a terrific source to either newbies to the sector in addition to complex practitioners.

Biomimetic approaches have proved to have significant potential for design implementations through their systemic complexity and manifold logics (Gruber 2011). Morphological principles of natural organisms are abstracted and transferred into architectural applications for their performative geometries and functional integration. Biological evolutionary processes offer a remarkable example for the integration of multiple requirements into the morphogenetic process. As observed by biological research, natural systems do not evolve as singular optimisation solutions, but rather negotiate between numerous and often conflicting factors, providing a compromise that can fulfil a multitude of requirements, contrary to conventional optimisation procedures (Knippers and Speck 2012).

In order to gain stiffness and meet the security requirements every single border has been edge treated (Fig. 14). Physical tests were previously effectuated in order to understand the relationship between the geometry of the glass panels and the structural behavior. The test objects were constructed in real scale and were then structurally evaluated. This 56 P. Eversmann et al. Fig. 14 Tower fabrication model Steel cable Glass Thickness d Inlay pockets Fig. 15 Physical test objects, glass-timber interaction method of empirical testing proved a fast way to approach the structural feasibility of the project and to get reliable figures needed for structural evaluation.

In both aspects the precast concrete system performed admirably, interfacing without issue with cumulative assembly tolerances in the order of C/ 5 mm. The case study pavilion also revealed an area where the method could be improved. The corners of concrete elements had a tendency to be crushed due to their sharp edges and small dimensions. A chamfer of around 5 mm needs to be added to the component design. 6 Conclusion As formulated in the introduction, an important goal for this research is to utilise digital form-generation and digital fabrication techniques to take advantage of concrete’s amorphous qualities and develop a novel construction system.
