algorithmic modeling for Rhino
The video below presents the design, fabrication, and programming of a modular, responsive surface.
The surface “shape-shifts” in response to the surrounding social conditions aiming at optimizing spatial interactions and improving the occupant experience within the architectural space.
The programming of the system conducted using Grasshopper and Firefly.
The video is part of study that aims to develop a Dynamic Modular Tessellation (DMT), which can be used as a repetitive building block to construct the building skin system. The design of the modular unit employs “minimum inventory/maximum diversity” strategies to cover various regular and irregular tessellations. Additionally, the paper discusses possible interaction modes of the structure including preconfigured interactions, responsive interactions, and predictive interactions.
