Understanding the geometry of breaking pattern and recreate it using a reflecting line to create a stable geometry for designing a canopy.


Understanding Breaking

  • Understand cracking pattern.
  • Broken object can be rebuild with fragments.
  • Fragmented geometry is more flexible and stable.

Conclusions from Breaking

  • Constantly appearing in nature.
  • Constantly appearing in man made environment.
  • Can be derived from a continuously reflecting line.
  • Forms a strong and stable geometry that can be used for architecture.
