The structures you se is the result of a new building method, this is very important to know. The method replace the tradisional building compoments with an assembly framework, this mean that you can perform a structure that have no trusses and hangers , all different steel profiles are replaced with a vowen structure made from sheet material.

The expression is fantastic and a complete form language that compensate the early computer mesh structures, with floors and walls, that as by magic is there while assembly building frames are put together.

You do not bend one single piect to form a round shape ,all building frames are cut flat with highly effective and accurate N.C. tools, originally 3D-H was develobed for boat and ships framing, where it solve obvious problems in a digital way. But houses and ships is not the only things you can produce as a frame structure with an unfolded surface. Bilbao as you proberly know, represent a very different technology as here the focus is the surface mesh, where 3D-H perform the structure, that is the floors walls and stairs that the old computer mesh did never provide.
