Leaded by Prof. Sergio Pone (Architecture Faculty – Università degli studi di Napoli “Federico II”), we are a very heterogeneous team formed by architects, engineers, researchers and students.
Gridshell.it is a web place where We share experiences, knowledges and passions about lightweight form resistant structures.
The research started in 2006. Milestones in the research are the built structures: Ostuni 2007, Lecce 2010, Napoli 2012, Selinunte 2012.
All people involved in gridshell.it live and work in Napoli metropolitan area, Italy.
We are interested in lightweight form resistant structures, for their capability to reach large spans with economical and ecological usage of materials.
