MAKING COMPUTATIONALLY | 1 WEEK | SPRING 2017 |
This project revolves around the merging of orders. Beginning with a certain end goal in mind, applied a series of geometric slices to the blocks, and then tried to move towards the end goal by applying an overarching order to the process. our 3 initial iterations and ideas were based around this philosohphy. The first idea revolved around having a symetric geometric shape in plan, but an asymetrical one in axon. The second one was playing with orthographic transformations to create complex geometry, while the third one revolved around the idea of explosion. for our final prototype, we chose to create complex forms from relatively simple orthogonal transformations , partially inspired by stephen wolfram’s ‘a new kind of science’. these transformations were namely - slice and rotate. despite having two basic rules, we found these to create quite complex forms as demonstrated below. our steps were a series of geometrically ordered slices [based on quarter’s of the original block] and then a set of rotations, after which we would repeat the slices / process again. the diagram below represents the steps that led us to our final form. for the extra credit part of the assignment [ represented on the lower half] , we chose to push this idea of orthogonal transformations and geometries further - by essentially slicing the formed blocks into 3 dimensionally varied stacks. this idea was especially intruinging, considering the visual connotations the stacking of material made to buildings, showing how shape grammars could have unique practical applications.
