At the very successful 2019 IASS Conference on Form and Force held at Barcelona in October 2019, several structural forms were Re-Viewed, Re-Imagined and Re-Created by some talented students.

The IASS has been in existence for 60 years starting off being concerned with shell and spatial structures. Initially the emphasis was on concrete shells and spaceframes but over time has embraced the same range of structures that our own LSAA encourages. So membranes, cablenets, gridshells, inflatables are now included made possible by advances in new materials and design tools and computer software.


But, as the late Frei Otto knew, there is nothing that provokes inspiration more that a realistic physical structure.

The following images certainly support the LSAA 2020 Conference Theme of Re-View, Re-Imagine and Re-Create.
