RCD are currently working with KAAN Architecten on PLANTA, a new Art Museum to be situated in Lleida, Spain. The building is a reinforced concrete single storey structure, partially buried underground.

As part of the ongoing design, we produced an optimisation study for the 200x70m concrete waffle roof slab in order to improve its efficiency. A bending stress field informs both the subdivision of an orthogonal waffle layout and the varying of its depth to generate a suitable distribution of structural material.
