Self-organising performance (scale of the structure)

The sub-project Self-organising performance (scale of the structure) investigates how principles of self-organisation can be used for structural optimisation. Taking point of departure in large scale timber construction, the project examines how the FE analysis of the material dynamics (flex and bend) embedded in the single element can be parameterised so as to inform feedback loops within a complex model composed of interacting sub-systems and used in the design of a load bearing surface-membrane.
