Tensile/Compression Surfaces in Architecture: Tactile Methods for Architects

The architectural history of tension and compression surfaces is the beginning point for this course. Research is conducted through continuous analogous modeling methods. Surfaces are determined through the interactions of forces and materials and a methodology for surface generation is determined. This tactile knowledge is then used to produce shells or other types of structures that, when combined, create shelter at model scale.
