Computational Surface Generation

Computational surface generation through the GH interface
f (x) = y * sin (z * x)
This research aims to investigate the generative process of components that belong to a double-curved computational surface, derived through the mathematical curve function f (x) = y* sin (z*x°) applied in two distinct directions. The surface parameters are able to vary and create time-based differentiated formal outputs in a digital parametric system. The parametric system is established through the set of rules and defined relations based on the McNeel Rhinocereos / Grasshopper platform. Geometry optimization becomes the integral part of the design process when the parametric model shifts into the architectural scale. Please visit: to watch the animation.
