title Fabricating Stereotomy - Variable moulds for cast voussoirs

summary Recent developments in digital design and fabrication tools have led architects and researchers to renew the interest in stereotomy. This interest converges with a growing ecological and economical conscience that matches classic stereotomy raw material needs: compression resistance materials. However, material resources or prefabrication time are still major counterparts for the adoption of this construction system. This paper focuses in exploring techniques that profit from the interdependency between built form and fabrication technique, foraging methodologies that allow for stereotomic block creation with simpler resources. The premise is to explore faster, cheaper, more accessible ways to build stereotomic structures. The technique developed in this research explores alternatives to the traditional cutting of stone by expanding techniques for variable moulds to form solid voussoirs.
