Ghosla Roof Update: Paper Accepted to CAADRIA, 2013

A paper outlining the theoretical and technical ideas behind the “Ghosla (nest) Roof” titled “Digitally Designed Architectural Form Built Using Craft-Based Fabrication: Weaving a Complex Surface as a Bamboo Reticulated Shell” has been accepted to the CAADRIA, 2013 conference of the The Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia, to be held at the National University of Singapore’s Department of Architecture from May 15th to 18th this year. The theme of the conference this year is “Open Systems” which suits the collaborative nature of the Nest Roof project where digital design methodologies are combined with craft-based construction and non-industrial materials.

On site, the bamboo work has been completed, giving final form to the shell. Here are some pictures from the site –
