Computational morphogenesis of hypar structures

Research projects

The aim of this project is to use parametric design and optimisation to define a computational process of morphogenesis for hypar shells. The church of Longuelo has been used as a first case study. 

Preliminary results have been published in the proceedings of the ASA conference 2014. A journal article is currently being prepared (expected publication: early 2019).

Team: Alberto Pugnale (Chief Investigator), Alessandro Liuti and Roberta Spallone.
