dc.description.abstractWe present a topologically-­based doubly curved building system, based on a single bending thin plate element. The system extends Buckminster Fuller’s plydome research, by proposing an elastic form­finding technique through the introduction of strategic singularities in a periodic grid of originally coplanar plates. The potential of this technique is explored and showcased through the design and manufacture of a large scale prototype.
