Abstract

This article explains parametric, fabrication and teaching strategies used during a workshop for constructing a full scale, self supporting, vault metal structure realized with parametric manufacturing methods. The key aim is to construct an easy assemble and transportable pavilion, while focusing on new design and construction methods of a façade system in which the structure, joint and skin will integrate functions in a unifying structural system. For the investigation, we explore materials commonly used in façade industry, such as aluminum profiles and aluminium composite panels (ACP).
