ABSTRACT

The paper is focusing on constructing nonlinear shaping of structural envelope in architecture of the digital avant-garde. Digital technologies create new opportunities by allowing construction of complex forms which until recently were difficult to design and build. The first part of the paper presents a concrete structure combined with a system of spatial structure used in constructing complex geometries envelope of The Heydar Aliyev Cultural Centre in Baku (2013). The second part presents how to build curvilinear surfaces with shot crete technology – The EMP in Seattle (2000), The City of Culture in Santiago de Compostela (2010) and The Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw (2014) will be presented. This study highlights issues of constructing curvilinear building envelops and shows new relationships between geometry and material which are different than before.
