title Design and Fabrication of 3D Reciprocal Frame Structure
source Living Systems and Micro-Utopias: Towards Continuous Designing, Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2016) / Melbourne 30 March–2 April 2016, pp. 725-734
summary Reciprocal frame structure is a special type of spatial struc- ture, which consist of elongated elements. The elements support each other along their span, compose a stable geometrical configuration without any clear structural hierarchy. Based on the morphology, the reciprocal frame could be categorized to 1D, 2D, and 3D. Compared to 1D and 2D, 3D reciprocal frame presents some novel features. It shows a growing pattern with some simple rules. Even with the same rule, 3D reciprocal frame could grow up to different form. It’s a typi- cal process of bottom-up which implies a considerable wealth of pos- sibilities. Study on the 3D reciprocal frame gives the potential for achieving novel and complex forms. With the restriction of the cate- gory of 3D reciprocal frame, the paper summarized the characteristics of the frame as growth, regularity, and spatiality. And the structure should be repeated, simulated, and constructed. The paper also ex- tracted three basic factors - growth rule, initial form, and bar size. Through the simulation experiments with different factors, the rela- tionships between the frame shape and the factors were established. At the end, a full-scale model validates the feasibility of the growth result of 3D reciprocal frame.
