A case study in reinforced concrete
Excerpt from the May 2018 issue report by Luis Pedro Sarmento Esteves and Goncalo Castro Henriques
Buildings like the "Sagrada Família" designed by Gaudí in 1926, seem difficult to attain or complete due to the economic restraints and skill limitations of the workers. Recently with the digital revolution, CAD-CAM (computer aided design, computer aided manufacture) technologies offer us the possibility to regain a new integration of disciplines, Kieran (2004). The building "Zollhof Towers" (2000) in Dusseldorf, by Frank Gehry was overlooked as a practical example of the use of different pre-cast panels built off the site.
