title Solar Spline - Expanding on traditional sun-sail typologies and Frei Otto´s lightweight approach with the help of computational design procedures
source Kepczynska-Walczak, A, Bialkowski, S (eds.), Computing for a better tomorrow - Proceedings of the 36th eCAADe Conference - Volume 1, Lodz University of Technology, Lodz, Poland, 19-21 September 2018, pp. 149-156
summary This paper presents the design and production processes of a real world organic photovoltaic lightweight installation realized at the University and School of Art, Kassel. It revisits thereby, Frei Otto´s lightweight principles to establish design criteria. Furthermore, we present the possibilities of computational procedures for the design of contemporary lightweight structures within a speculative design setting. Last, we illustrate the benefits of these tools for the design of lightweight structures and the role they played in re-conceptualizing traditional sun-sail typologies within an interdisciplinary student team.
