Experiment 1

While absent from the blog for a while, I have been experimenting with a combination of Grasshopper, Rhino, 3dsMax and Indigo. Geared more towards the extreme abstract, the end result of such an investigation is quite satisfying — whether “they” like it or not, I cannot help but scatter eye-candy over a plain old wireframe.

A simple mesh built in 3dsMax was sent into Grasshopper and then morphed and then lofted to create these forms (which can be adapted on the fly with a simple slider)  and then sent back to Max to render with Indigo. Could an architectural form be conjured from such chaos? Who knows, but the form is so intriguing that I don’t really care. Parametrics FTW.
