this article aims to explore new construction processes, capable of facilitate and optimize the production cycle of structural forms based on the double curvature. We intend to explore the potential of an adaptable rigid formwork system capable of producing sinlastic and anticlastic surfaces. An integrated approach that takes into account the generation of form, structural mechanics, and its construction process, in order to generate architectural artifacts of great structural and constructive efficiency, with a strong artistic expression. This system combines cable net with cut linear pieces in a way that material bends. The system is based on a cable network supported by a frame and covered with an adaptive formwork covered with shotcrete.

Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)
