Eike Schling is an architect who researches and teaches at the Chair for Structural Design at the Technical University in Munich. Since 2008 he has worked as a computational designer at Auer+Weber in Munich and PLP Architecture in London. This experience fostered his interest in the design and planning of façades and structures with complex geometries. Since 2012 he has been teaching parametric methods, architectural geometry and structural behavior with the clear goal of enabling fabrication-aware design.
Eike completed his doctorate “Repetitive Structures” in 2018 with distinction. His research investigates the potentials of designing gridshells with repetitive elements based on a holistic consideration of geometric parameters and constructive criteria.
In his talk, Eike Schling will present a variety of architectural studies which aim to construct gridshells from repetitive parts.
