title A Robotically Fabricated Connection System as a Possible Solution for a Free-form "ROBO-WEB" Gridshell which Takes Inspirations from English Fan Vaulted Cathedrals

summary Gridshell is a unique category of shell structures, which, by departing from a double-curved resistant form, concentrates the forces in its lattice members. Majority of the gridshell structures use quadrangular or triangular grid patterns because they can easily mesh and it is less complicated to resolve its details. This research project provides a unique robotically fabricated joinery system for free-form gridshells. The research project attempts to increase the versatility in terms of design and feasibility in terms of construction for future gridshell structures. It tries to merge the extremely efficient historical design principles with the new age design and construction methods. The lattice grid for the Robo-Web gridshell takes inspiration from the ribs of the English fan vaulted cathedrals. Based on the experiences gained through the research project the research concludes with a critical discussion of the practical applications and future scope of the free-form lattice grid and robotically fabricated joinery system.
