Innovative Use of Composites for Organic Architecture
In this interview recorded at JEC World 2018, Atanas Zhelev, Chief Architect and co-founder at Digital Architects Ltd., talks about the innovative use of composites for organic architecture.
Composites offer designers the ability to create a material and engineer its properties to resist particular load cases and environments. Such infinite possibilities can be daunting and a big step away from the more conventional way of working with a material having a known set of characteristics.
It is here that architects and structural engineers can be aided by Altair’s software, such as ESAComp, now available as a standalone product in Altair HyperWorks advanced simulation and optimization software suite, to produce efficient, stable and durable composite structures.
