generative modeling for Rhino
I created a 3D voronoi block from a point cloud and am now trying to figure out how to create the script to turn the voronois into a skeleton like the picture below. I realize the script must be somewhere in one of these discussion forums, but I've had no luck with finding it yet. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

There's not too much to know. It was a very fast competition project (2-3 days) that I did a couple of years ago. The competition brief called for a new gate on the site of London's Aldgate (Old Gate) to commemorate the recent development of East London for the Olympics. I thought that putting a gate up to celebrate the connection between two communities (The City & East London) was a bit too binary. If the goal was to celebrate a new, more inclusive London, putting up a gate (which by definition signifies 2 sides) was the wrong tactic.
So, instead of a simple, singular, passive gate separating the two sides, I decided to create a more complex, multiple, inhabitable network of gates that create both an area of shelter for markets, protests, etc below and a series of amphitheatres, hills, and grassy patches above. So rather than creating a space of division (you are either on this side or that side of a gate), the "New Aldgate" would be a space of community and inclusiveness.
On the technical side, it was actually the first project that I did completely in Grasshopper (handrails, stairs, wood decking pattern, everything). I'm glad you liked it. Right before submitting, I reread the requirements and saw that you had to be a registered architect in the UK (which I am not) so we never actually submitted for the competition. That was probably all for the best considering the winning proposal. The judges were clearing looking for something more minimal and gate-like.
many thanks for the detailed explanation.
i have also worked on a similar theme,
but formally slightly different.
maybe that's why i like your project. :)
again, many thanks.
Great project. Thanks for the link.
