Building matters An investigation into the use of dynamic formwork systems
Adderley, Allison Lynne

Formwork has often been defined as a temporary building element, typically neglected and rarely interpreted by architects as nothing more than a byproduct of construction. However, by reconceptualizing its role as a permanent building component, its construction performance now can be evaluated in parallel with its architectural function. This research reinterprets standard casting conventions as a means of rethinking design parameters, one that considers form and formwork during and after construction as equals in terms of architectural significance.
