The Parametric Sculpture is to represent the combination of natural growth patterns and modern digital design methods to interpret a structural system similar to that of a coral reef was simulated.

 


 

The sculpture envisions a coral structure inspired by natural groth patterns to infill the interspaces of a subterranean computer pool. The sculpture provides the room with sunlight and
natural air and therefore creates a connection to the outside world in the isolated computer hub. The final sculpture was envisioned using ā€˛Grasshopper – Generative Modeling” and further scripting
to create a variable setting for each interspace in the room defined by the light conditions from outside and the arrangement of the workstations in the room.
Form+Code Parametric Sculpture is to represent the combination of natural growth patterns and modern digital design methods. A natural growth pattern (in this case a three-dimensional Voronoi), similar to that of a coral reef was simulated. The smooth, natural language of architecture is supported by new digital design techniques and manufacturing processes, rather than necessarily following a repetitive pattern, which coined the architecture of the 20th Century. Special attention was given to the density, dimensions, quantity of nodes to provide maximum space efficiency.
