|For 70 years , architects tries to erect single block , extreme complex , giant shapes , buildings , sculptures , factory roofs , chapels, stadiums , airports etc out of concrete.
Felix Candela and Eero Saarinen are one of the best.
These shapes classified as hyper surfaces and before computers widespreaded , many sculptures made , cast , hammer them.
It goes back to barbara hepsworth and moore to 1940s and before that french mathematicians and their followers.
The construction was done by small rectangular wooden tiles cover the bottom and top of the mold and concrete been casted.
But japanese and canadians found , it can be casted in specially cut and sewed textile.
I am adding a knitting machine generated textile mold and covering one side with concrete and made a felix candela structure where mold been hanged in a steel tubular , will be disassembled later- structure.
Knitting with thin , clean plastic fibers will generate clean surfaces and make ready the surfaces covered with concrete or plastic or cast inside.
You can make extreme flying objects or your boat out of this technology.
