DESIGN TO INSTALLATION OF A FREEFORM ROOF CLADDING WITH A FLEXIBLE MOULD:
THE ARNHEM PUBLIC TRANSPORT TERMINAL


Abstract
: In this paper, Marc Hoppermann of UNStudio’s Smart Parameters Platform (SPP) provides background information on the fabrication process of the GFRC roof panels for the Arnhem Central Public Transport Terminal designed by UNStudio. The paper was written together with SORBA (the installer) and MbX (the GFRC supplier) and was presented at the IASS Future Visions 2015 conference in Amsterdam. In the paper, a case study is presented detailing the fabrication of doubly curved GFRC roof panels for the Arnhem Central Station. These panels were produced using a flexible mould system and an innovative digital chain of information by the authoring companies.
