      Darling Square, Kengo Kuma In this stage, there are two main problems with this geometry: 1- Although there is the “cap holes” component, the cylinders are not capped. 2- In the fifth floor, there are multiple cylinders instead of one cylinder. After solving these problems, the wooden elements can e added to this shape. Therefore,Continue reading "Chunking down step 1"

        Busan Cinema Center, Coop Himmelb(l)au Questo secondo step ci ha permesso di avvicinarci maggiormente alla reale geometria della Copertura del Busan Cinema Center. Grazie all’utilizzo del componente Image Sampler in sostituzione del componente Graph Mapper (come da step 1) è stato possibile ricreare più fedelmente l’andamento ondulatorio della struttura.

        I think there is a problem with the shape. The shape of the building should be tall and thin, not short and fat. The height and number of floors are correct, but the radius of the circle at the bottom should not be 100 meters. The next step should be to find more multiple pointsContinue reading "Chunking down step 1"

        In this first attempt at redesigning 30 St Mary Axe, I managed to recreate the outer structure, rotating 5° for each floor, forming the typical diamond-like facade of the building. Furthermore, i added the smaller glass panels, completing the facade. Moving on, i recreated the peculiar shape of each floor, leaving the triangular openings.
