AQUA TOWER, Studio Gang Architects, Chicago USA 

// Scope of the Assignment

Decoding the logic of an existing, complex facade systems; defining and analyzing the computational settlement behind them are mainly aimed. The facade system of  Aqua Tower, by Studio Gang Architects, is selected to approach a grasshopper code setting to propose a facade solution.

Grasshopper definition proposal:

// Step 1 : Creation of undulating sun shading facade elements

// Step 2 : Creation of glass facade system

// Final Product


Parametric Facade Decoding is a project of IaaC, Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia developed at MAA01 in 2017, during the SO.3 – Computational Design course by:
