This assignment aims at decoding and setting up a logical and hierarchical computational strategy for an existing façade system. The reference façade selected for this exercise is
ArboSkin Pavilion by ITKE.

Step by step:

  • A curve is drawn or selected for the desired geometry to be generated on

  • Perpendicular frames are generated on the curve

  • Different sizes of circles are created on these planes and cut in half

  • Curves are lofted to create a surface

  • Triangle panels are generated on the surface

  • Triangle frames are gathered from the panels

  • Depending on two attractor points, frames are resized

  • Resized frames are moved away from their normals and lofted with the previous frames

  • Surfaces are joined and thickened
