Abstract

The paper discusses the design, fabrication and assembly of a free-form roof structure constructed using a hybrid method of cross-laminating structural plywood. The research outlined the roof's design, fabrication and engineering workflow within an integrated fabrication environment led by the architect in collaboration with the engineer. Such workflow constructed resilience in the design and manufacturing process. The digital fabrication of the structure was developed in a single parametric model informed through 3 sets of physical prototypes. By incorporating as-built site information through digital scans, the assembly process was enhanced with feedback to ensure precision in manufacturing, thereby demonstrating care in construction through digital technology.
