summary With the rapid development of the digital fabrication technology, structural performance based design shows broad application prospects. Based on the research project "Reverse rafter", this paper aims to explore the possibility of simulating and re-applying Chinese traditional wood tectonics with structure performance based computational technology. Taking "eaves rafter" as research prototype, this project employed topology optimization as research method and “Millipede” as analysis tool. Through the comparison between the analysis results of traditional structure calculation and topology optimization method, this project revealed the underlying structural principles of "eaves rafter", based on which a modern reciprocal structure installation was generated through digital design method. CNC cutting technology was employed to ensure the fabrication accuracy in digital fabrication processes.
