This paper describes the geometry and structural design of a flexibly formed, mesh-reinforced 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 optimization of the shell, and subsequent analysis of its nonlinear behaviour.
