This is a spin-off study from the weaving structure series at the Weixin Huang Studio at Tsinghua University. Based on a new type of woven structure that is force-compliant and easy to fabricate, we explored the possibility of using this structure as a concrete shell casting mould. The advantages of this concrete casting method are that it is simple, quick, requires no specialist skills, environmentally friendly and recyclable.
