Great job!!!
I really like your project. I'm trying to understand the logic but I have hard time creating your tetrahedron and cube. I'm mirroring the tetrahedron but the sides just don't match. Also i noticed your cube has different "triangulation" than what I get with mirroring. Can you explain or send me a 3d model. Thanks!

Hallo Ferd,

The 1/2/3 connection is the amount of connections on each corner of the cell, which you can see in the ghosted renderings. The form was built, like in the video: designing the base surface and building up a kaleidoscopic arrangement by mirroring and orienting the surf. Dynamic relaxation was not a part of the form finding process. Although its a big part of the project in terms of creating the minimal surfaces.

Hoffe das beantwortet deine Frage. Grüße zurück nach Stuttgart

very nice project, liked the detailed articulation.

may I ask, what do you mean with 1/2/3 connections? do you use physical simulation engine (dynamic relaxation) for the form finding process? either way awesome project.. grüß aus stuttgart

Wow, That is a really cool auditorium space. I really like how the windows diffuse the light into the space and how the chairs flow along the curved surfaces.
