(Digital) Form-finding

Pugnale, Alberto

September 2014 | Chapter

In book: "AAD Algorithms-Aided Design. Parametric strategies using grasshopper", (pp.352-359). Publisher: Le Penseur. Editor: Arturo Tedeschi. In architecture and structural engineering, ‘form-finding’ identifies the process of designing optimal structural shapes by using experimental tools and strategies, i.e. physical models, to simulate a specific mechanical behaviour. The reverse hanging method is...
