algorithmic modeling for Rhino

I was in doubt at first whether to share this here - but i guess it never hurts!

A symbolically critical pamphlet

For the hip architectural public, there surely isn’t any need of introducing the (in)famous Voronoi diagram. If there is, then you probably shouldn’t be reading this text and you’re better off doing something else. Nevertheless, I find myself under increasing pressure to express my thoughts regarding what I find to be a shallow, often completely mis-interpreted and un-justified use of what started out to be a mathematical “toy”. The practical applications of the Voronoi diagram are quite numerous highly fascinating. However, they are beyond the scope of this article – I want to focus mainly on the (mis)use of the aforementioned algorithm in architecture and urbanism.

Hey Taz, thanks for the praise.
As per what's a voronoi diagram, it's this thing in grasshopper under the mesh tab... sweet! ;)

What's a Voronoi diagram? I kid, I kid...

Excellent manifesto-in-the-making material.

Any time! And there's more to come (hopefully).
