Reimagining Compression Shells

There is much to learn from the forgotten architectural and structural principles developed by the master builders of the past. Novel structural design tools that extend traditional graphical methods to three dimensions allow designers to discover a vast range of possible forms in compression. By better understanding the flow of compressive forces in three dimensions, excess steel can be eliminated, natural resources can be conserved, and humble materials like earth and stone can be reimagined for the future. 

The book presents the theoretical and methodical foundations of the award-winning Beyond Bending exhibition at the Venice Architecture Biennale in 2016, giving in-depth analyses, interviews and numerous illustrations and drawings for insight into the making of the exhibition’s centerpiece, the Armadillo Vault. The Block Research Group is the DETAIL Reader Prize Winner for 2016.
