KANGAROO

Accoding to physical force, the line will go up

REVERSING ENGINEER

Drag one point to lift up the curve (physically)

Control by several point, number slider decide the shape (generative design)

B3

REVERSING ENGINEER (force up)

Since we still stuck on the line work, and thus I start work on Kangaroo to see if we can get some new outcomes. We trace the curve from previous link work and make it inot surfaceto create the form.

B3

REVERSING ENGINEER (force up)

by setting different point s as items and put them into kangaroo. In order to get some unexpected result, we set some moving points. Hence, we can gert different results.

B4

APPLY PATTERN

by appliying pattern, we start looking at hexagonal shape. At first, we need to make it into a surface and then apply pattern. hexagon- is create a hexagon shape on the surface and use pipes to connect them.

part C flower iteration

Since we aiming to create the flower as our design, and thus we decide to make a circle first and find the intersection point. After that doing the array on this point to create the petals. We want our flower can curl in relation to the surrounding temperature. To do the shape of flower is a starting point to do the curling sense.

the first and econd trial to make a curling pattern, but we failed

part C

site arrangement

The point attractor in grasshopper shows how software helps design. When we doing the site arrangement, we just draw a curve on the site and write the definition in grasshopper, afterthat, it will create lots of different outcomes. Some of arrangements are really surprise us. Computer software helps designer save lots of time on design and will provide lots of interesting and unexpected results.

part C

site arrangement

The next step is to make the design efficiency. Since the sun has the most efficiency at north and thus we plan to put high flower to north to get maximum sunlight

For site arrangement, I realize that point attractor is useful. By future developing Hasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; definition, we create two curve working together. Since we also want to have different heights in our site, and thus we set different flower poles and apply to the point attractor. Therefore each flower can have own height. In order to highlight the centerline, we set many high flowers in the center and small ones apart.
