These beam and vault designs were inspired by the structural formation of bone structures, and were made for the in-house Ideal Beam + Vault competitions in my studio. They were generated in Rhino with plugins for Grasshopper, with an emphasis in formal and structural optimization using Karamba, Millipede and Galapagos. The fabrication methods intended to treat paper as a monolithic material rather than a sheet material in order to maximize strength and eliminate weak seems and connections.
