By Philippe Block, Jan Knippers, Niloy J. Mitra, Wenping Wang

This publication includes 24 technical papers awarded on the fourth version of the Advances in Architectural Geometry convention, AAG 2014, held in London, England, September 2014. It deals engineers, mathematicians, designers, and contractors perception into the effective layout, research, and manufacture of complicated shapes, with the intention to support open up new horizons for architecture.

The ebook examines geometric points enthusiastic about architectural layout, starting from preliminary notion to ultimate fabrication. It specializes in 4 key issues: utilized geometry, structure, computational layout, and likewise perform within the kind of case stories. additionally, the publication additionally gains algorithms, proposed implementation, experimental effects, and illustrations.

Overall, the booklet provides either theoretical and functional paintings associated with new geometrical advancements in structure. It gathers the varied parts of the modern architectural developments that push the construction envelope in the direction of loose shape so as to reply to a number of present layout challenges.

With its creation of novel computational algorithms and instruments, this ebook will turn out an incredible source to either novices to the sphere in addition to complicated practitioners.

1 Architectural Concept The pavilion Slicing Opacity is the application of the system simplification enunciated in Sect. 3 and 4. It is demonstrating the structural efficiency obtained by the slicing of freeform surfaces into structural planes equally distributed, following a variation of only two different heights. It illustrates the new potentialities in the use of structural glass for architecture. As the scale of the pavilion was closer to urban furniture the idea of organic shapes was chosen to maximize possibilities of interactions with the visitor (Fig.

9). Defining a fabrication system for non-standardised components presents several unique challenges. Namely, providing an adaptive framework with a high level of geometric flexibility, which subsequently must maintain the rigidity necessary for winding tensioned fibres; while minimising the materials and complexity required by the use of a standardised kit-of-parts. Each component is defined digitally by a set of two non-planar closed polygons containing 4–7 vertices each. Each vertex has 8 degrees of freedom (Fig.
