The idea of the assignment was to understand how loops work and how you can create a changing system to adapt to an existing architectural space.

The given space was the Mies Van Der Roho pavilion in Barcelona.

Using loops I adapted the pool of the pavilion to have a temporal installation that resembles the movement of fabric.

Pseudo Code:

  1. Create a curve and use it as a base line for the loop.
  2. Open a loop.
  3. Divide the curve and create a vector.
  4. Use a random number to simulate movement in the object along the vector.
  5. Join the vectors to create one curve.
  6. Create a series of repetitions along the Z plane
  7. Loft the curves.

Iteration #1

Iteration #2

Iteration #3

Iteration #4

Getting to know how the loops work and applying to an object was challenging but I think that once you understand how it works it can be very helpful and a useful tool.
