Gridshell.it

Gridshell.it is a team of architects and researchers. The knowledge and experience acquired by Gridshell.it over the years comes from a passion for lightweight structures, which cover large spans using a minimum amount of material, therefore providing an incredible spatial experience. Research at Gridshell.it started in 2006, and now covers a range of topics on design, technology and construction of timber gridshells, which are approached by means of advanced digital design processes and small- to medium-scale prototypes to reach the best structural solutions and appealing architectural proposals.
