SIT-DOWN-FRIENDS by Zhuoying Lin & Hugh Lee


The project explored computational representations as structural artifacts.

we began our iteration process with a section cutting from a cone. The final form starts from two section curves from a cone. By slightly rotate the upper curve, we got an ellipse. The upper curve was then moved up unevenly in each point and finally for two basic shape curve for parametric design. By using computational design software, we got multiple subdivision of curve, and sort out multiple lists of point. By connecting those lists of points in a mathematics order, the structure is generated. With the increasing of subdivide points, a shape between the two base curves also formed. The poly lines create a hollow structure, which also create possibility in weight loading aspect. The parametric calculation provides some randomness in the final structure, giving the physical structure a future possibility of explore its new usage.
