Form, Force, Performance: Multi-Parametric Structural Design
2008 (English)In: Architectural Design, ISSN 0003-8504, E-ISSN 1554-2769, Vol. 78, no 2, 20-25+112 p.Article in journal (Other academic) Published
In the 20th century, the classification of structures according to defined building typologies was central to engineering design. Here Professor Klaus Bollinger, Professor Manfred Grohmann and Oliver Tessmann of design engineers Bollinger + Grohmann challenge this preconception. By considering each structure as an individual case in point with inherently complex behaviour, they move away from the notion of a building being a variant of an established type. They further discuss this mode of working, in relation to their own recent projects, in terms of relevant methods and generative techniques, as well as the respective consequences that it has had on the relationship between force, form and structural performance.
