This booklet 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 bargains engineers, mathematicians, designers, and contractors perception into the effective layout, research, and manufacture of advanced shapes, with a view to aid open up new horizons for architecture.

The ebook examines geometric features concerned about architectural layout, starting from preliminary notion to ultimate fabrication. It specializes in 4 key subject matters: utilized geometry, structure, computational layout, and in addition perform within the type of case stories. additionally, the booklet additionally positive factors algorithms, proposed implementation, experimental effects, and illustrations.

Overall, the ebook offers either theoretical and sensible paintings associated with new geometrical advancements in structure. It gathers the various elements of the modern architectural developments that push the construction envelope in the direction of loose shape that allows you to reply to a number of present layout challenges.

With its advent of novel computational algorithms and instruments, this ebook will end up a terrific source to either newbies to the sphere in addition to complicated practitioners.

2b), the micro CT scans were processed to very detailed 3d mesh data and allowed insight into the global as well as the internal structural morphology (Fig. 2a). Like the biological role models, which come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, an extensive array of performative architectural forms, which follow these structuring principles and fabrication parameters, are possible. Comparative studies of eight flying beetle species allowed for the abstraction of the underlying functional principles.

Simultaneously, developments of a coreless robotic winding method for glass and carbon fibre reinforced composite elements are incorporated into the design process. The computational set-up developed for the entire workflow is presented, showing the integration of structural analysis with digital simulation, which enables the automatic generation of the robotic winding syntax for individually differentiated components. The investigations, simulation, fabrication and assembly process, which led to the realisation of a highly efficient lightweight architectural prototype, are explained in the current paper.

The following sections explain the basic mechanisms of such a system in order to get an understanding of the constructive feasibility. The main structural principles constraining the design also reveal the flexibility of the system and show the possibility to use it as a design driving principle. 2 Structural Glass In contemporary architecture there is an increasing demand for transparency.
