Designing a facade component in UHPFRC requires clear strategies in the form rationalisation and the moulding approach. UHPFRC is a rather new material that needs design rules. It will necessarily proceed from technological means available. Indeed process enables “Typologies” of façades. In this paper, a focus on material and technological constraints will give us a first attempt on design rules related to UHPFRC in the defined domain of facades applications: Economical, Physical, Constructive and Topological. To asses it, the method explored here will be a feedback on recent projects. In a first introductory part, the relationship between manufacturing and design with UHPFRC will be presented. Intrinsic material constraints will be presented in this part. In a second part, the method will be applied on three types of moulding: table mould, injection, and pressed moulding. Related projects will be fruitful case studies for the initial concept developed in part one.
