WORKSHOP: FORM FINDING BY CHRIS WILLIAMS

Sculpture

 On September 27th 2010 Chris Williams gave graduate workshop on dynamic relaxation techniques. His work in the generation of structural form through biological and other analogies has lead to collaboration on a number of projects including the British Museum Great Court Roof (Buro Happold and Foster + Partners), Millenium Dome Central Show nets (Atelier One and Stufish), Japanese Pavilion Expo 2000 (Buro Happold, Shigeru Ban Architects and Frei Otto), Weald and Downland Museum (Buro Happold and Edward Cullinan Architects), the Savill Building (Buro Happold and Glenn Howells Architects), Gardens by the Bay glasshouses (Atelier One, Wilkinson Eyre and Grant Associates) and the Netherlands Maritime Museum (Ney + Partners). His work on these projects involved writing project specific software for geometry definition and structural analysis.
