title Generative tool to support architectural design decision of earthbag building domes
source SIGraDi 2017 [Proceedings of the 21th Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics - ISBN: 978-956-227-439-5] Chile, Concepción 22 - 24 November 2017, pp.584-589
summary The interest in earthbag dome construction (also known as sandbag, superadobe or superblock construction) is increasing as a world consciousness develops to achieve the planet’s equilibrium for sustainable living. The main objective of this research is to develop a parametric tool to help architects modeling virtual earthbag domes from ideation to construction phase. This challenge has been addressed by adopting an experimental methodology that explores parametric generative design with the use of visual programming language (VPL). In this paper we present the development of a tool for the ideation level including features that allow for the calculation of material quantification. The usability of the tool was validated by earthbag constructors and architects.
