Dome 090

As part of the feasibility study into the most efficient structure for a dome over two hundred metres in diameter Ramboll Computational Design built upon and refined the techniques developed for the Tallinn Town Hall roof project. A double skin stick and node structure is automatically generated within the semi sphere volume first using the physical properties of a gas and then electrical repulsion to locate every node the same distance apart thus making every structural element the same length. This technique can be adapted to free form shapes and our software also allows for structural feedback and automatic reconfiguration to suit the stress distribution within the frame.
