# SELF-CONSTRUCTION /// The gridshell

YO! here is a pretty cool construction system that have been develloped by Frei OTTO
and then applied in several building like the Japanese Pavilionby Shigeru Ban with Frei Otto at Expo Hanover 2000, the Polydome of the EPFL (école polytechnique de Lausanne) or the Dowland gridshell by Edward Cullinan Architects + Structural Engineer Buro Happold.


Few words to explain how to build one in your backyard:

1- Do a planar wooden grid that can rotate on crossings...
2- Pull slowly the point(s) that you want to see up until you get the shape you wanted...
3- Block the points that you want to keep on the ground with weights or punctions...
4- Cover the grid with thin plank that you nailled into the grid, do this two or three layers...
5-You got your own gridshell building!
