The continuing development of fabric formwork as an alternative to more traditional and rigid formworks such as timber or steel, opens up many possibilities in concrete design and construction. This, in conjunction with the emergence of parametric architecture and programmes such as rhino or grasshopper, has unleashed endless potential to create double- curved structures and complex organic forms. This research aims to explore how both fabric formwork and parametric design can create a series of biomorphic columns, each resulting in a unique outcome through the use of a standardised mould. This mould shall be designed to be easily constructed and facilitate interaction in the process of making. Our aim is to create a formwork that allows anyone to get involved in concrete construction while still resulting in a variety of outcomes.
