Riassunto analitico
The thesis ‘Digital Biomimetic Morphogenesis of High-Rise Building’ presents the planning of a skyscraper through a method based on biomimetic, which is defined as the imitation of models, systems and elements of nature aimed to solve complex human problems. This particular planning process utilised in-depth analysis including parametric models which permitted the optimisation of the structural elements. The biomimetic analogies, including the mechanical and functional properties of bamboo stem, were transposed through a mathematical and analogic process, within the morphological and structural configuration of a high-rise building, in order to obtain advantages both in terms of static performances and optimisation of the use of materials. Comparing in fact, the bamboo stem with a high-rise building, it can be noticed how the performance of the biological model are similar to the chosen structural system. Therefore, an eventual shape of the tower, conceived through the differentiation principle of the bamboo laws, can provide an appropriate reaction to the lateral loads, which are preponderant compared to the gravitational actions. The parametric planning, integrated with new software and methods, gave the opportunity to face the complexity of the project and resulted fundamental for the planning management of this type of building.
