The Random Context Generator is a project of IAAC, Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia developed at Master in Advanced Computation for Architecture & Design in 2020/21 by: Keshava Narayan

Faculty: Luis Fraguada | Will Pearson

The Random Context Generator App is a solution to the problem of creating contexts for architectural models. The app solves a very important problem of helping architects and clients visualise their models right in the browser in the interactive context designed by themselves by using the sliders and the checkboxes.

The main difficulty during this seminar was to learn how to code and implement this skill on the fly. Learning and using basic HTML, JavaScript(alongside with threejs libraries) and CSS allowed to create a simple yet easy to use and understand UI.

The checkboxes can be manipulated to display the road and to display trees etc.


The GIF below shows the functionality of the app. You can also upload your own Rhino model to visualize the model right from the browser.
