Fabricating Complexity in Concrete with #iceformwork

Author: Vasily Sitnikov

ESR9- SIMULATING CONCRETE FORMWORK AUTHOR: VASILY SITNIKOV   In order to minimize the amount of cement involved in concrete constructions, the concrete industry today chooses to reduce the share of cement in the total mass of concrete. This approach leads to lower mechanical properties of concrete, resulting in thicker floor slabs and massive beams. An... watch video

IRREGULAR CABLE-NETS: EXPLORING IRREGULARITY AS A DRIVER FOR FORM AND STRUCTURE

Author: Evy Slabbinck

Unlike conventional cable-nets that typically use evenly spaced cables laid out in an orthogonal-grid, introducing irregular patterns into the form-finding process of cable structures enables designs with non-directional grids and varying cable concentration. watch video
