|Title:||Bioinspired architectural design based on structural topology optimization|
Vieira Junior, Luiz C.M.
|Abstract:||This paper aims to present a new approach for using structural topology optimization to evaluate and generate bioinspired architectural design. To investigate these possibilities, we present several experiments in two and three-dimensional domains under a variety of load and support conditions that are inspired by nature. These experiments are based on structural topology optimization techniques, which have shown to be viable for fostering innovative ideas to solve complex building stability problems. Moreover, these techniques enable fruitful collaborations between architects and engineers in the early stages of the design process. We compare the optimal solutions with different species of plants and animals and evaluate their potential use as a structural system through visual and quantitative analyses. Results reinforce the efficacy of using topology optimization in the development of bioinspired structures and, as such, its future use in creative design contexts|
