Abstract

This paper discusses the use of scripting procedures and structural computation applied to the stonecutting of vaults. Starting from the conceptualization of trumpet squinches in various treatises, it offers an understanding of the parametric framework used. The operation is then replicated on Wallis’s conical edge surface as described by Guarino Guarini, demonstrating how to create complex surfaces from the basic script. The second part concerns the structural behavior of a conical vault in the same coding environment, thanks to Thrust Network Analysis method. Configurative and geometric analysis of vaults is paired with structural integrity in order to better manage historical buildings.
