Using Altair HyperWorks to Design the LAVA Bionic Tower

Although topology optimisation is not generally applied in the design process for buildings, it can still be deployed with the right technology tools! This is why James Kingman – graduate at University of Leeds decided to take on a challenge. James had been given a CAD model by Laboratory for Visionary Architecture (LAVA) based on the Bionic tower located in Abu Dhabi. Once the CAD model had been evaluated, James used Altair HyperWorks to create his own finite element analysis model of the unique tower.
