# AL BAHAR TOWERS

The 145-meter towers’ shading system was developed by the computational design team at Aedas. The façade is a kinetic installation which answers to the amount of light; in this context, the sun, embracing the south and the east façades of the building,

The form is basically a repetition of hexagons, divided into triangles that creates the main components of the design. By sub-dividing these triangles through the middle points of its edges, moving parts of 3 are obtained for every triangle components. controlling the amount of sunlight that enters.

**PSEUDO CODE**

- Draw a line in rhino and divide it n times.
- Calculate the radius of a hexagon according to division number and the length of the curve.
- Move the division points x times with the height of 1.5*radius.
- Mask every other point to create a staggered pattern and place hexagons to these points.
- Create a boundary surface from a hexagon.
- Divide hexagons into triangles and divide these triangles from the center point into sub-triangles.
- Extract the middle point of the outer edge of the triangle.
- Rotate the center point along a circle around the center of sub-triangles.
- Place a point in rhino to work as an attractor for the rotation angles.
- Create lines using the rotating point and 2 other points.
- Create a boundary surface by using the lines.
- Merge all surfaces.
