The aim of this project was to explore structural performance  while minimizing material and maintaining adequate load distribution.

Technique : 3D Printing

The bricks were cast with patterns similar to field lines representing load distribution across the bricks. There were no voids provided in the brick to add to the structural performance of the brick. The idea was to concentrate the maximum load in the center of the brick. Placement of bricks was done in such a manner that it creates a random pattern.
