Abstract
This is an investigation into the possibilities of using repeated members to generate complex geometry, specifically using alternating beams of uniform dimension to create both structure and building envelope. These beams are placed according to a single, custom-built "generator" element and then clad using as few custom shapes as possible. In many cases, the generator element is the ridge beam of the roof - but it is not always part of the permanent construction.
