generative modeling for Rhino
I'd like to do something like in picture below.
I know how to triangulate surface (divide surface in rectangles, and then in two triangles- is it right?) but have no idea how tu put the geometry on those triangles. I've seen tutorials explaining how to put such a things on rectangle but I guess that's not the same in case of rectangles?
can anyone help me? :)
The photo is of the Singapore Esplanade. I believe the shading devices are tailored to a specific solar orientation...
Because the sun’s position and movement is constant year round, the architects devised a fixed cladding system consisting of a glazed steel space frame with triangular aluminum sun shields. The shields are set to be more open or closed, depending on the angle the sun hits them, so the glass facades are protected from direct sunlight without limiting the views. This textured sunshade skin has given rise to a number of endearing (and not-so-endearing) nicknames for the complex, such as “petals,” “fish scales,” and “bug’s eyes.” Singaporeans (also known as “heartlanders”) have seemed to settle on calling it “the durian” – a sweet local fruit known for its prickly skin and noxious smell.
do you know every building in the world ?!
...I only know half the buildings (Google knows the other half) but everyone loves precedent studies!
