summary The paper addresses a specific method for the production of custom-made, differentiated moulds for the realization of a complex, doubly-curved wall element during an international three-week architectural programme, Architectural Association (AA) Summer DLAB. The research objectives focus on linking geometry, structure, and robotic fabrication within the material agency of concrete. Computational workflow comprises the integration of structural analysis tools and real-time form-finding methods in order to inform global geometry and structural performance simultaneously. The ability to exchange information between various simulation, modelling, analysis, and fabrication software in a seamless fashion is one of the key areas where the creation of complex form meets with the simplicity of exchanging information throughout various platforms. The paper links the notions of complexity and simplicity throughout the design and fabrication processes. The aim to create a complex geometrical configuration within the simplicity of a single material system, concrete, presents itself as an opportunity for further discussion and development.
