summary This paper is about designing a process to create a lightweight building envelope using a shrinkfilm. The advantage of using this material for architecture is that we can simply construct the complex geometry without requiring an expensive formwork. In addition to this, this research illustrates the methodology to control the 3-dimensional form of the shrink-film by using simple 2-dimensional patterns. These patterns enable us to easily manipulate the form. In this paper, the simulation and the prototyping are conducted in both physical and computational methods.
