Constructing complex geometries
a case study on the cité des civilisations du vin in bordeaux, France
A number of geometric optimization were applied to the Cité des Civilisations du Vin in Bordeaux, France. The façade is comprised of a curved panels attached to wood laminated, also called glulam, beams.The purpose of this paper is to describe the research to construction process undertook by Vinci Construction France as part of the contracting consortium for the project when dealing with geometries involving concrete, laminated wood, glass panels and metallic panels.
