Brief: The objective of this exercise is to decode the logic of complex facade solutions. An existing facade has been recreated using a series of logical steps to understand the computational system behind it.

Project: Damiani Holz & KO Office, Bressanone BZ, Italy.
Architect: Modus Architects

Surface&Contour: Create surface and then create divisions on the surface through contouring. This serves as the basic form for the louvers.
ProjectContour&RuleSurface: Surface connection created with the projected contour division in direction XZ.
Extrude: Ruled surface in direction X extruded to create the louvers.
Surface Transformation: Viewing points and rebuilding the surface and baking it in Rhino.
Frame&Volume: Additional surfaces created and extruded on top and bottom along with volume to hold the louvers.

This is the first assignment for ComputationalDesign
Faculty: Rodrigo Aguirre and Aldo Sollazzo.
