Form finding of nexorades using the translations method

We propose a novel form finding technique for nexorades: it was used for the design of the timber pavilion we built last year. You can check the article for free until October 14th.

This article proposes a new computational method for the form-finding of nexorades, also called reciprocal frames in the literature. The method is bas…
