The high performance offered by fibre composites make them yield great potential for architectural application. Their high mechanical properties, as well as their potential for programmed anisotropy, can bring innovative construction typologies. Past applications in architecture were unsuccessful due to the lack of customisation in their application.Contemporary examples, however, have addressed customisation but through the use unique and expensive moulds. ICD/ITKE Fibre composites research showcased the potentials of fibre composite performance in the building industry. Customisation of elements was achieved using minimal moulds through coreless filament winding. We propose to continue the current research and increase possible morphologies with a more universally applicable process. The aim of this MSc thesis was creating a 3-Dimensional Modular System of Differentiated Fibre Composite Building Components, with a robust simple and portable fabrication setup.
