Zaha Hadid Concrete Shell

2011


Design Architect: Zaha Hadid Architects Computation and Design Group

Fabricator: Kreysler and Associates Digital Fabrication

Structural Engineer:
Nathaniel M. Stanton SE AIA
CRAFT | Engineering Studio

Design:  
The Zaha Hadid concrete shell structure is part of a larger pavilion complex erected in Mexico City by Zaha Hadid Architects Computation and Design Group in conjunction with Kreysler and Associates Digital Fabrication. The structural shell is comprised of conventionally reinforced concrete less than 2” in thickness, following in the tradition of the work of the Spanish architect Felix Candela.  The form of the shell is a structural confluence of a folded plate and a doubly curved conic.  Craft provided structural consulting for the shell structure as well as a historical perspective into the fabrication and reinforcing techniques of influential shell engineers and architects such as Candela, Torroja, Nervi and Isler.
