# Catalan Rooftop

## Pseudo Code

### Set up

Generate and locate a basic geometry, a triangle, over Iaac’s rooftop

### Anemone

Open loop

Selection of basic geometry

Mirror geometry using one of the triangles edges, this will generate 2 triangles attach to each other

Selection of second triangle, mirror it using one of the edges from previous mirror geometry

this rule will generate 3 triangles attach to each other their edges

Close Loop

### Cleaning

Remove duplicated lines

Generate a mesh

### Kangaroo

Using previous mesh apply select specific points to anchor our geometry to the ground

Apply different forces over mesh

Test deformations using different strength apply to each of the forces

### Post-production

Clean mesh generated form kangaroo

Extract its Edges and Vertices

Pipe Edges/Generate structure

Sphere over vertices generating structural Nodes

Generated mesh will represent a lightweight fabric.
