Pattern Logic: Algorithm in Architecture and Design
This advanced seminar offers students the opportunity to focus on computational topics pertaining to architecture. Computational techniques and computational ideas are explored through making, writing, reading, and discussion.
1.Generative Pattern: Fractal
Write a script that will generate a space-filling curve---Hilbert Curve. Results from iteratively applying a simple rule that replaces a line segment with a collection of line segments. The pattern that emerges can be surprisingly complex after just a few iterative steps
Take a random distribution of points in a plane, and apply a "relaxation" to these according to the following rule: move each point away from its nearest neighbor by an amount determined by a repel factor. Finally find a suitable repel factor such that the distribution of points converges to a uniform triangulation.
