title Synthesis of Form, Structure and Material: Design for a Form-Optimized Lightweight Membrane Construction
source Silicon + Skin: Biological Processes and Computation, [Proceedings of the 28th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) / ISBN 978-0-9789463-4-0] Minneapolis 16-19 October 2008, 200-207
summary The design for the Cologne Elephant House is the lightweight, membrane construction of a transparent “roof cloud” over a free plan geometry. This was made possible through the use of a new form-optimization method for structural calculations (SLang)1 and the use of ETFE Fluoropolymer sheeting for the roof material.
