*** Featuring a Chapter by Pritzker Prize Winner Shigeru Ban *** Bringing together experts from research and practice, Shell Structures for Architecture: Form Finding and Optimization presents contemporary design methods for shell and gridshell structures, covering form-finding and structural optimization techniques. It introduces architecture and engineering practitioners and students to structural shells and provides computational techniques to develop complex curved structural surfaces, in the form of mathematics, computer algorithms, and design case studies. Part I introduces the topic of shells, tracing the ancient relationship between structural form and forces, the basics of shell behaviour, and the evolution of form-finding and structural optimization techniques. Part II familiarizes the reader with form-finding techniques to explore expressive structural geometries, covering the force density method, thrust network analysis, dynamic relaxation and particle-spring systems. Part III focuses on shell shape and topology optimization, and provides a deeper understanding of gradient-based methods and meta-heuristic techniques. Part IV contains precedent studies of realised shells and gridshells describing their innovative design and construction methods.", *** Featuring a foreword by Pritzker Prize Winner Shigeru Ban *** Bringing together experts from research and practice, Shell Structures for Architecture: Form Finding and Optimization presents contemporary design methods for shell and gridshell structures, covering form-finding and structural optimization techniques.

Part 1 introduces the topic of shells, tracing the ancient relationship between structural form and forces, the basics of shell behaviour, and the evolution of form finding and structural optimization techniques. Part 2 familiarizes the reader with form finding techniques, covering the force density method, thrust network analysis, dynamic relaxation and particle-spring systems, and discusses how to steer form. Part 3 focuses on shell shape and topology optimization, and provides a deeper understanding of gradient-based methods and meta-heuristic techniques. Each chapter in Parts 2 and 3 is constructed as a lesson with clear learning objectives, developed design case studies, in depth mathematics, homework questions, definitions of key concepts, and suggested further reading. The precedent studies in the Part 4 demonstrate the innovative design of realised gridshells and continuous shells and their design approaches. With contributions from a range of prominent practicing architects, engineers and academics, this book provides architecture and engineering practitioners with an in-depth introduction to shell and gridshell structures.
