Reinterpretation of the flat vault - Digital Fabrication.
Flat Vault - Research Project.
Department of Architecture. University of Alcalá
[in progress] This research project is currently seeking a new reinterpretation of the ancient structure of the flat vault used in different Spanish buildings in the XVII century, composed by a puzzle of carved stones. Through parametric design, these geometries are designed and placed in the right position.
Thanks to the digital design, we can program a robot to place them, and secondly an external frame compress the pieces to get them working by shape.
The prototype is made of different plastics such as PLA, PETG and PC using 3d printing.
