In this research, the authors discuss multiple design process criteria, fabrication methods, and assembly workflows for covering spaces using discrete pieces of material shorter than the space's span, otherwise known as topologically interlocking structures. To expand this line of research, the study challenges the interplay of geometric relationships in the assembly of unreinforced and mortar-less structures that work purely under compressive forces. This work opens with a review of studies… CONTINUE READING
