2010, Dec– / Roof structure

previousnext
For this assignment I created a light, large span roof, and analyzed it’s structural behavior under different load cases using SAP2000. The final design takes as inspiration Shigeru Ban’s cardboard structures, using waterproof pipes as arcs and rods. The starting points of the arcs and the joints between elements are built in a slightly more techy way than those of Ban’s structures, more expensive but probably easier to mount. A second order structure of steel cables has been added in order to ensure rigidity.
