Call for RhinoVAULT case studies and survey

The Rhinoceros® plugin RhinoVAULT emerged from research on structural form finding using the Thrust Network Analysis (TNA) approach to intuitively create and explore compression-only structures.

Call for case studies and survey

Block Research Group (BRG)is looking for convincing case studies. If you can answer one of the following questions with yes, we would love to hear from you:
  • Did you use RhinoVAULT in the design process for a real structure or building?
  • Did you use RhinoVAULT for a student design project or master thesis?
  • Did you use RhinoVAULT to design and build a model, prototype, or pavilion?
  • Did you use RhinoVAULT as a teaching tool in your class?
Please send an email to with details or a download link (via wetransfer, Dropbox, etc.) until September 20th.

BRG also created a short and simple survey form (will take less than three minutes) for anybody who has used RhinoVAULT and is willing to share their experience.

Link to the RhinoVAULT survey:


All of the participants will be entered into a drawing for a copy of the book Shell Structures for Architecture: Form Finding and Optimization (Cool extra: The book will be signed by some of the book’s authors!)

The winner will be notified and announced on the blog.

We look forward to hearing from you! (
