Design and Additive Manufacturing of Lattice-based Cellular Solids at Building Scale

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


The amounts of material that is being extracted, harvested and consumed in the last decades is increasing tremendously and bringing to the serious problem of resource scarcity. As a direct consequence to this claim, designers are challenged to rethink architecture and develop new ways of confronting with materials. A potential answer to this problem is the exploration of computational logics for architectural design and fabrication inspired by the observation of biological formations. This work explores how the biological model of bone microstructure can be applied to a larger scale architecture that is structurally responsive, by means of computational design and Additive Manufacturing.
