Abstract: 1 o t flt 'oAut. n. The hyperbolic paraboloid shells have beoo*e ,Very popular all over the world on account of their ,pleasing appearance ønd ease of cone tru+ott.sn0 This shell root has been made popular by the interesting examples of •R*itx Candella (13) .and others. Some very bold and aesthetically pleasing stmaturas have been designed making use S the excellent arobi teotru nsI possibilities of this type of a+ rans shell. The umbrella typo shell is so well knowa. nor, The forawork becomes even simpler than those for cylindrical shells bsoause of the peculiar gsow.trioal property of the hyperbolic paraboloid that it can be generated by the translation of a straight line so that •aoh wad travels along another straight line, The two straight lines are oontaiaed in two parallel planes but are not at the snore time in a cession plans and therefore the snit ar form work can be *ad* out of straight boards or planks although the shell surface itself is doubly curved and of negative gaussian curvature, 2 F rth©rmore, we obtain an 000noni oal us a of the oo rtruotion w►tsriala.
