Dome Athletics is a collective result from Parametric Architecture subject at ETSAV, where degree, master, PhD and teachers participate.
All domes share the same generative process, all similar but all different to force each group to deal with its intrinsic geometrical challenge.
The exercise is divided in two parts: Laminar continuous surface and discreete structural mesh. Minimizing material and ensuring stability.
1:1 experimentation is a fundamental part of the course to positively add feedback to the abstract fields of computational design.
We consider essential to integrate on desing leraning, shape optimization for fabrication process encouraging solutions with minimal waste and best stability.
The aggregation is a repository of exchangebles procedures. Class and teacher generates the leraning matetrial collaboratively.
