This ebook includes 24 technical papers awarded 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 advanced shapes, that allows you to support open up new horizons for architecture.

The publication examines geometric features excited by architectural layout, starting from preliminary notion to ultimate fabrication. It makes a speciality of 4 key subject matters: utilized geometry, structure, computational layout, and likewise perform within the kind of case experiences. moreover, the booklet additionally good points algorithms, proposed implementation, experimental effects, and illustrations.

Overall, the e-book offers either theoretical and sensible paintings associated with new geometrical advancements in structure. It gathers the various elements of the modern architectural trends that push the development envelope in the direction of unfastened shape which will reply to a number of present layout challenges.

With its advent of novel computational algorithms and instruments, this publication will end up an amazing source to either newbies to the sphere in addition to complex practitioners.

A strategic preselection of biological role models, which was based on natural lightweight fibre structures with specific features like material anisotropy, materialisation processes and resulting functional morphologies, preceded the project. The selected role models were investigated by interdisciplinary teams of architects, structural engineers and biologists. Throughout these investigations the natural fibre composite structure in the beetle Elytra, the protective shell of the abdomen and wings, provided a versatile role model for performative lightweight structures.

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. 5 Case Study: Utzon 40 Pavilion A case-study pavilion entitled Utzon:40 was constructed in Sydney to coincide with the Utzon Symposium at the Sydney Opera House in March 2014.

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. A major problem was to accommodate the tolerances of the different glass thicknesses due to the lamination process to the pocketing of the wood panels in a way to provide sufficient holding of the panels on side loads.
