Learning From Physical Data

AUTHOR:
Zeynep Aksöz

 

In this phase of the project the possibilities of working with physical design artifacts were investigated. The experiment was aiming to learn from the designers tacit knowledge by analyzing physical models and their performances created by the designers, to design new...

CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK FOR ANALYZING AND DESIGNING BENDING-ACTIVE TENSILE HYBRID STRUCTURES

This paper investigates and demonstrates the structural and architectural potentials of torsion in plate elements for bending-active tensile structures and evaluates the limits to which torsion can be employed in plate-hybrid structures. Bending‐active tensile structures are a novel typology of lightweight structures utilizing integrated bending-active elements as support for a membrane structure.
