Abstract: The process of form finding of shell structures was always a challenge for architects and engineers, and an issue of effective collaboration. Tools which allow finding an equilibrium shape of structure change a lot as time goes by. Modified Force density method together with topological mapping is applied for form finding of compressed structures. GAUDI software is a new form‐finding tool based on constant values of the force:length ratios that give endless opportunities for creativity for architects and engineers. It allows finding an equilibrium shape of structure initially desired by an artist by iteratively changing input parameters. With this tool, forces follow any well conceived form of structure. This new conception changes the traditional notion of “form follows forces” to “forces follow a well conceived form”.
