CAST at the University of Manitoba

The University of Manitoba's Centre for Architectural Studies and Technology (CAST) is an architectural research lab that seeks to embrace both the poetic and technical dimensions of architectural design. Its website has some particularly interesting information about its invention and development of flexible fabric formworks, or fabric-formed concrete, and provides an opportunity to see how the technology has been applied to a wide range of forms from curtain walls to branching structures.
