This project focuses on the realization of a ‘Cantilever’ as a research problem. Located above the main entry of SCI-Arc, Cantilever is an advanced monocoque construction featuring complex force flows and responses, developed using generative structural software intersected with the material logics of fiber-composite construction. It involves research into surface-based structure and structural adhesives, borrowing heavily from nautical and aerospace construction logics. ANSYS, a digital engineering tool is explored, with emphasis on local evolution of structure rather than universal solutions.
