Abstract [en]

This paper describes a structural design approach that seeks to replace structural purity and preconceived typologies by site-specific constructions. The process is exemplified by a canopy design for the Frankfurt fair. The competition-winning proposal is the result of a collaborative design effort of architects and structural engineers. In a computational design process the structure is optimized in regards to fabrications requirements and material consumption.  Beyond the particular project the design process is accompanied by a design tool development. Shortcomings in existing tools became obvious in the process and showed the need for in-house development of advanced collaborative digital design tools.
