We started a collaboration with Escobedo Construction for the design, fabrication and construction of a stone masonry vault featuring new forms for compression-only structures. By combining our expertise in understanding the three-dimensional equilibrium of complex structures in unreinforced masonry and Escobedo's expertise in design and construction of stone buildings, we expect to produce a state-of-the-art full-scale prototype.
