The THINkSHELL project encourages and accompanies expeditions in the field of structural engineering. It promotes an integrated vision of research, education and fabrication which embraces the whole design process from the very first sketches to the construction of full scale buildings, from material/assembly testings to the development of original numerical tools. The team gathered around the development of the first prototypes of elastic gridshells in composite materials. Nowadays, it combines expertise in the field of architecture, material science, structural engineering, historical buildings, architectural geometry and numerical fabrication.
