Composite Systems for Lightweight Architectures

  title={Composite Systems for Lightweight Architectures},
  author={Andrew Wit and Rashida Ng and Cheng Zhang},
The introduction of lightweight Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) based systems into the discipline of architecture and design has created new opportunities for form, fabrication methodologies and material efficiencies that were previously difficult if not impossible to achieve through the utilization of traditional standardized building materials. No longer constrained by predefined material shapes, nominal dimensions, and conventional construction techniques, individual building… CONTINUE READING
