    • Getting The Arch Back Into Architecture

      This is an appendix to my Master Thesis in Architecture at Chalmers University of Technology. The title of the thesis is "Getting the arch back into architecture" and was presented in May 2014. Link to pdf: http://publications.lib.chalmers.se/records/fulltext/203465/203465.pdf The lasers are guided by Grasshopper through the amazing plug-in Firefly, which connects Grasshoper with Arduino micro controllers. I read about Cuban tile vaults (catalan vaults) in a web magazine in 2009 and it caught my intrest, which led me to read some research by John Ochsendorf and the new Thrust Network analysis by him and Philippe Block. Since then i have followed their research on compression structures and decided to dig a bit deeper in my master thesis to find a practical work flow to design vaults today, since I think they are an important part of future sustainable development in Architecture.

              from Modelical Added

              This video shows the workflow developed by Modelical together with Bovedas Hispanas that allows to lay out a tile vault without the assistance of -almost- any physical guidance. Using in-expensive cameras as control instruments, the location and adjustment of each tile is calculated and feedback is provided to the bricklayer. The video displays both the technical principles and a slideshow of one of the vaults created using the system.
