Complex geometries can produce amazing architectural objects, and requires us in finding the right link between the virtual image and the object that one or multiple contractors will have to build.
Our scope of work includes optimization of both the volume and the tiling, taking into account the constraints of the chosen materials and finding the solutions to manufacture and assemble into a performing and safe construction. This approach can have significant, usually positive implications on the costs.
Parametric and form-finding programs are the modern and time-saving tools that help us, but the starting point remains to understand the mathematic and physical rules. An interesting aspect is the possibility to link the shape to some physical reality such as optimized structural behaviour, solar protection, acoustics or rain water drainage.
