A minimal surface is a surface which minimizes its area. in mathematics; it’s a surface with zero mean curvature, a Minimal surface, is a modelling concept for surfaces brought from the field of mathematics into architecture because of its beauty. its Found in nature on the surfaces of manipulated soup bubbles using wires; in this surfaces, the bubble optimize its shape and create a new surface with minimized area.
Examples of Minimal surfaces
catenoids, helicoids, Schwarz surfaces, Riemann’s surface, Enneper surfaces, Henneberg surfaces, Bour’s surfaces, Gyroids, saddle tower, Scherk’s surfaces, costa’s surfaces, Hoffman surfaces and Chen-Gackstatter surface.
a couple of experiments we have done, Using physical modelling techniques. we used the Kangaroo engine to simulate how a surface reacts under different situations.
