Stuttgart 21, Reinforcement
Solutions for building complex geometries

The new central station for the Stuttgart 21 infrastructure project by Ingehoven Architects with Frei Otto features complex double curved concrete geometries. The roof transforms into 28 structural columns thus providing daylight openings for the underground station. ROK's scope of work ranges from shape optimization processes for the reinforcement geometry to automatic reinforcement layout and planning of over 10000 reinforcement elements per column. ROK's customized software solutions allow the generation, clustering and handling of complex data sets used to produce detailed reinforcement drawings. ROK was commissioned by the engineers Werner Sobek Stuttgart.
