Through three examples from practice spanning decades, this paper demonstrates the evolution of the geometric definition and structural analysis of complex geometry buildings. Gaps in current knowledge relating to computation and geometry are then discussed, and of the case is then made for the birth of the new Computation and Geometry study group as part of the IASS SMG. The study group aims to support research in computational geometry in structural engineering by bringing expert researchers and practitioners together in order to increase and share knowledge. Research themes relate to digital design and the description of structural geometry based on computational methods and techniques. The use of computational methods and software tools in the creation of structural geometry will also be explored.
