title Quarra Cairn: Incremental Stability Through Shifting and Removal of Mass
source ACADIA 2017: DISCIPLINES & DISRUPTION [Proceedings of the 37th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-0-692-96506-1] Cambridge, MA 2-4 November, 2017), pp. 650- 659
summary Recent advances in integrating physical logic into computation strategies have brought the mastermakers mentality back to the forefront of the digital era, yet a long-standing problem persists: ongoing efforts to develop reciprocal structures with gravitational forces tend to generate forms that are unable to be constructed without massive falsework. This paper explores the potential to intelligently remove material from the interior of a column drum in order to produce a leaning column that could contribute to solving this age-old problem. The paper describes the computation and fabrication logic required, then demonstrates a full-scale prototype and some of the discoveries that emerged as a result of the computation process.
