Abstract [en]

Bollinger + Grohmann conceive of structure as an integral part of architecture. The overall performance of an architectural project results from negotiating and balancing a complex network

of multifaceted, interrelated requirements. As the design of structure is just one aspect within

such a network of manifold relations, the appropriate structural systems cannot be found through

single‐parameter optimisation. The specific forms derived through such a multiparametric design

process need to be analysed in order to identify zonesP of favourable structural performance. The

related structures adapt their load‐bearing capacities to the form and its particular local forces.

Thus the resultant structures are highly specific, differentiated systems rather than variations of a

defined typology. Nowadays, engineers are able to calculate complex load‐bearing systems. A

structural design does not necessarily have to be broken down into its individual components to

be assessed. The entire system can be investigated in all its parts together with the interactions

between them.
