The generation of 3D surfaces based on curved foldings is a time and cost-efficient process, avoiding the use of moulds. In this paper, we demonstrate that by using the mechanical behaviour of materials and folding kinematics we can expand the possibilities of this fabrication technique. Paramétric...

“Metal Euplectella Folie” is a prototype which explores an innovative design and manufacturing method for free‐form architecture. Four 40m long by 0.4m wide by 1.5mm thick steel sheets, each cut to a unique pattern and then spiral‐wrapped, form a sculptural tube assembled without the need for any...

This article concerns the development of prototypical, opaque cladding systems, and, in particular, how the design concept can impact energy performance. As always, the success of a project depends on its details, but this is particularly critical in the case of complex geometries. Each component...

Glass construction

DETAIL German/English edition,
“Transparency is overrated,” Jacques Herzog asserted roughly a year ago at the opening of the Vitra Schaudepot in Weil am Rhein. Is that really the case? In the present issue, we explore this topic and take stock of the present situation. Admittedly, the emblematic character of transparent...
