summary Presented work is inspired by the research on funicular structures by Block Research Group and customising bricks by the first author. The research is focused on developing a mortarless construction system for funicular structures using topological assemblies on site. To make the proposed system financially viable in the India, it is suggested to limit the customisation of the topological modules. Topological assemblies interlock with its contact surfaces (Tessman, 2012). Further these force locked elements are kinematically constrained using an extrados post tensioning. As a result, the system is stable not only in complete compression, but it can also withstand lateral loads and vertical upliftment. Additionally, it is quick to assemble and dismantle the structure without foundation and by using minimum scaffolding. Therefore, the construction system can be used to build a range of temporary as well as permanent structures like temporary exhibition halls, emergency shelters, earthquake resistant structures, etc.
