Could algorithms revolutionise building construction?

Researchers at ETH Zurich have pioneered new building techniques for manufacturing thin concrete shapes using algorithms to reduce waste.

They have demonstrated their techniques on a curved concrete prototype which took six months to build.

They hope their process will be a cheap and efficient method for architects to make buildings with innovative shapes in the future.
