A doctoral dissertation

Better late than never, below is a link to my PhD thesis about the architectural potentials of fabric formwork. As always, feel free to contact me with feedback, much appreciated!!

The long title of the thesis is (take a deep breath) "Fabric Formwork for Concrete – Investigations Into formwork Tectonics and Stereogeneity in Architectural Constructions" and you can download it right here. Here is a link to some of the terminology used/coined.

Here is a much shorter version - an interview about the work.
