This lecture will present new computational form-finding approaches for exploring three-dimensional equilibrium shapes, by understanding Gothic masonry vaults. Through the use of intuitive graphical methods, the designer gains control over the exploration of form, which blurs the boundaries between funicular (compression-only) and free-form design.
