title Topological Interlocking in Architectural Design
source Emerging Experience in Past, Present and Future of Digital Architecture, Proceedings of the 20th International Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2015) / Daegu 20-22 May 2015, pp. 107-116
summary The paper presents the initial results of a study that examines the potential of using the concept of topological interlocking as a structural and organizational mechanism for architecture in general, and for building façades in particular. The paper opens with a review of existing research on the notion of topological interlocking. It then presents a catalogue that characterizes the various types of topological interlocking systems and compares the potential of these types to be employed in architectural design. This is followed by a discussion regarding the results of fabrication experiments that examine the specific types, which appear to have the best potential for architectural design.
keywords Structural fragmentation, building facade, parametric design, surface tessellation, complex geometry.
