Abstract

The discussion of the competition design development of the Dutch Maritime Museum Shell roof by Ney and Partners shows the quest for a structurally efficient catenary form based on a poetic geometrical idea. This paper presents a novel methodology that slightly adapts the catenary shape with the objective of achieving planarity in all the triangulated, quad angulated and pent angulated mesh facets. The challenge of facet planarity is gracefully solved and adds to the elegance, structural efficiency and economy of this design (part b).
