Helmut Pottmann (Technische Universität Wien)
Many of today’s most striking buildings are nontraditional freeform shapes. While using current modeling tools to digitally design freeform geometry is well understood, fabrication on the architectural scale is a big challenge, providing a rich source of research topics in geometry and geometric computing. Pottmann will provide an overview of recent progress in the emerging field of architectural geometry, discuss its relation to contemporary research in geometry and computer graphics, and illustrate the shift of mathematical research into architectural practice.
