Abstract
This paper reports the under construction project of the crematorium which has the free-curved RC surface, designed by Toyo Ito Architects and Associates. In the structural planning, structural system of this building consists of the RC rigid frame with the shear wall, steel column and free curved RC surface. With respect to free curved RC surface, the scheme of computational morphogenesis is utilized. By using this scheme, the configuration of free curved RC surface which is satisfied with a certain structural rationality and an architect's aesthetics has been obtained. With respect to the construction, the form work of the the free-curved RC surface is planned by using method which 3D modeling technique has been applied.
