Abstract

What is the role of the relationship between form and structure in contemporary architecture? Can this relationship be the basis for the creation of new forms? And in particular what does role do to the connection to the ground in this relationship? The thesis aims to investigate form in its generative relationship with structure, within the contemporary Swiss cultural context, focusing on the connection to the ground. It investigates how structure can be the founding element of the project in its aesthetic aspect and material concreteness, capable through variations, alterations, to become generative text of form. The material is intercepted in the structural, load-bearing, and therefore founding components of architecture, (Berlanda 2013; Berlanda 2014 a; Mosco 2012). For this reason the thesis focuses on the connection to the ground, which becomes the pivotal element around which to read the relationship between the formal component and the structural component. How the loads from the top arrive at the crucial point of relationship with the soil and how the soil relates to the project.
