This paper describes the result of a travel scholarship undertaken in 2013 and generously funded by the Institution of Structural Engineers' Educational Trust Pai Lin Li Travel Award. The principles of form active design can facilitate architecturally interesting, structurally optimised, materially efficient construction. The paper sets out to illustrate: • How the concrete construction industry may be positively influenced by recent advances in flexible formwork technology, towards an aim of low carbon construction • How the prestressed brickwork and construction techniques of Eladio Dieste might be utilised to influence the future direction of form active construction across the world.
