ABSTRACT

The paper presents analogies of self-formations in architectural design linked to the theory of David Bohm on dialogue. Due to Bohm, dialogue offers an effective method for holistic understanding and scientific achievements emerging in an interactive participative self-formation-process. In the field of structural engineering, the scientific community uses the term self-formation in the context of “Active Bending”. This paper presents elastic bending as a creative form-finding tool for complex curved micro-architecture developed by Walter Klasz and his students at the University of Innsbruck and at the Technical University of Vienna. Active Bending structures have the disadvantage of material fatigue and as such the problem of increasingly growing weakness. To guarantee long-term structural strength of such bent forms, selected studies present exemplarily hybrid solutions for long-term stability. The structures form and stabilize simultaneously during the assembling process. The paper focuses on the parallels between this physical emergence from weakness towards strength and the properties of the Bohmian Dialogue, where a strong thought emerges out of the open dialogue. The R&D-Project Neuschneewolke-Lüsens (see Fig. 01) presents a full-scale proof of concept.
