This paper describes the geometry and structural design of a cable-net and fabric formed, ferrocement sandwich shell roof, as part of the NEST HiLo project, to be built in Dübendorf, Switzerland, in 2016. The computational design process consists of an integrated parametric model used for multi-objective evolutionary shape optimisation of the shell, and subsequent analysis of its nonlinear behaviour.
