ABSTRACT
As part of a design-build studio, graduate students in Georgia Tech’s School of Architecture collaborated in designing a public performance space in Atlanta, GA. The performance space was designed to comprise curved concrete elements that will serve as seating surfaces and support columns for a canopy. The team used three-dimensional parametric modeling to produce working, construction, and shop drawings. To produce the formwork for the seating and column elements, expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam was chosen due to its ease of manipulation and recyclability. EPS inserts will act as the interior surface of the formwork, against which the reinforced concrete will be cast.
