title Bending-Active Bundled Structures: Preliminary Research and Taxonomy Towards an Ultra-Light Weight Architecture of Differentiated Components
source ACADIA 13: Adaptive Architecture [Proceedings of the 33rd Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-1-926724-22-5] Cambridge 24-26 October, 2013), pp. 293-300
summary This paper documents preliminary research into a bending-active architecture that leverages the “bundling” of linear force-active elements in order to create spatial diversity and differentiation.The primary design components of the system are light-weight GFRP rods and tubes that perform well in elastic bending. Material testing and iterative physical model studies are documented, and provide a framework to guide the further development of emerging spring-based computation methods. Challenges to the system include the analysis and resolution of rod-to-rod bundled connections, as well as the development of predictable bifurcation and crossing unions. The paperidentifies key precedents to the work followed by a brief summary of the material selection and testing framework. A speculative taxonomy of bundled bending-active “types” is proposed and supported by examples and prototypes.
