Springer Publishing had announced the launching of Design to Manufacturing of Complex Building Envelopes “Single Layer Envelopes: Mullion-Transom Systems + 3D Printed Metal Nodes” book by Alamir Mohsen.
The book discusses a new method for the design and engineering of complex facades “Li3-Method”. Based on the file-to-factory concept, the method combines parametric design approaches and additive manufacturing.
The book is based on over seven years of development and prototyping. Moreover, Lithium Architects GmbH has been contracted by H+B Hightech to design and engineer their office extension in Baden Württemberg, Germany. The project is the first worldwide to be planned and constructed following “Li3-Method” and to be constructed out of Standard façade system and Additive manufactured (3D Printed) metal Nodes.
