Timber fabric structures

Yves Weinand

Yves Weinand is an architect and structural engineer and founder of the Bureau d’Études Weinand in Liège/Belgium. He is currently working on the ice rink in Liège and the parliament building in Lausanne, where timber is used as the structural component. Since 2004 he has been Professor and Head of IBOIS Laboratory for timber constructions at the EPFL. Here he directs an interdisciplinary group of architects, engineers, mathematicians and computer scientists who perform research work in the fields of timber rib shells, folded timber plate structures and woven timber structures. Author affiliation details are correct at time of print publication.

Integral joints for timber folded plate structures

Christopher Robeller

Christopher Robeller is an architect and postdoctoral researcher at the Timber Construction Laboratory IBOIS at EPFL Lausanne. Christopher received his architecture diploma with distinction from London Metropolitan University in 2008 and worked at the Institute for Computational Design, Stuttgart from 2008–2010, where he developed integral timber plate joints for the awardwinning ICD/ITKE Research Pavilion 2010. Since 2011 he has been working at IBOIS and received a doctoral degree from EPFL in 2015 for his thesis entitled ‘Integral Mechanical Attachment for Timber Folded Plate Structures’. His research was published in journals and conferences such as Bauingenieur, ACADIA, RobArch and AAG, where he received the Best Paper Award 2014.

A hybrid simulation workflow for timber fabric structures

Sina Nabaei

,

Sina Nabaei is a structural engineer and graduated from the École Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées Paris. From 2007–2009, he contributed to the structural design of glass canopies of the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris. In 2014, he completed his PhD on form-finding of timber fabric structures at the École polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, where he explored computational approaches to deal with the nonlinear equilibrium of elastic interlaced panels. His field of expertise is on complex geometry, form-active structures and Bridge/Infrastructure engineering. He is currently working at BG Consulting Engineers Lausanne.
