Form Finding

The development of optimal form by using the interaction between geometry and forces can deliver some amazing structural outcomes which are economic, sustainable and aesthetically attractive. At Alan Wood & Partners we love to optimise design by form finding methods where the structure itself defines its own shape based on its figures of equilibrium under applied loads. The development of computers and advanced analytical packages has taken us from free forms which are defined mathematically, to complies numerical analysis form finding that relies on structure and loads themselves for definition.

Form finding out comes are emergent property of natural form end usually come into being seemingly without pain, at a multitude of scales, and in a vast array of materials.
