Construction of Planar and Symmetric Truss Structures with Interlocking Edge Elements
TLDR
It is demonstrated that breaking the pieces can indeed facilitate the effective assembly of these pieces through the use of a simple key-in-hole concept and these modular elements can be assembled together to form an interlocking structure, in which the locking pieces apply the force necessary to hold the entire assembly together.

Bi-Axial Woven Tiles: Interlocking Space-Filling Shapes Based on Symmetries of Bi-Axial Weaving Patterns
TLDR
This paper introduces a geometric design and fabrication framework for a family of interlocking space-filling shapes called bi-axial woven tiles based on a unique combination of Voronoi partitioning of space using curve segments as the Voronoa sites and the design of these curve segments based on weave patterns closed under symmetry operations.

APART but TOGETHER The Interplay of Geometric Relationships in Aggregated Interlocking Systems
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'sExpand
Contemporary Stereotomic Trait, an Opportunity for the Development of the Volumetric Digital Architecture
TLDR
The paper argues that the trait, stereotomic geometric negotiations platform, re-examined in a contemporary context, lends itself as a theoretical model for the current digital architecture's pursuits of multiple constraints assimilations within design processes and their physical reflection in formal complexities.

Earth masonry structures: arches, vaults and domes
Abstract: This chapter discusses design and construction of vaulted roof systems using earthen masonry. Arches, vaults and domes can be used to create unique architectural spaces whose aestheticExpand
Digital Stereotomy : Voussoir geometry for freeform masonry-like vaults informed by structural and fabrication constraints
This paper discusses new ways of digitally generating voussoir geometry for freeform masonry-like vaults. Through the combination of the recently developed form finding methods like Thrust NetworkExpand
Graphical Tools for an Epistemological Shift. The Contribution of Protoaxonometrical Drawing to the Development of Stonecutting Treatises
In this paper we analyze the graphical methods employed in the stonecutting treatises from that of De l’Orme, published during the sixteenth century, to De La Rue’s Traite de la coupe des pierres,Expand
Thrust Network Analysis : exploring three-dimensional equilibrium
This dissertation presents Thrust Network Analysis, a new methodology for generating compression-only vaulted surfaces and networks. The method finds possible funicular solutions under gravitationalExpand
Toward a Stereotomic Design: Experimental Constructions and Didactic Experiences
The present study explores the possibility of tying up again the broken thread of research on stone- cutting construction following in the wake of the discontinued weave of stereotomic culture,Expand

Gaudí and CAD
TLDR
This paper focuses on a similarly reciprocal relationship between the developing use of computer-aided architectural design (CAD) and the detailed design and construction of the greatest work of a forerunner of this contemporary shift in spatial theory in architecture, the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi.
