BACK2BACK with the previous mentions of the FG on Subdivisional Systems
gettin 3D was an eaazzy wayout -
In recent years, much of the discussion in the field of algorithmic architecture and generative design has focused on agent-based models and what is more generally termed as complex systems. While there is no doubt that complex systems can produce intriguing results, the aim of this project is to use a very simple process to generate heterogenous, complex output. A simple process has the advantage of more control; its output is easier to predict and can therefore be more easily refined through subsequent parameter adjustments.
This project begins the exploration of 3-dimensional subdivision processes. By modifying these algorithms to include additional weights, one can generate forms with entirely different attributes. Each of the pavilions is based on two interlinked cubic frames, similar to a tesseract. The generative process for each of the pavilions is identical, only its parameters – specifically its division weights – are allowed to change.
