Mateo Deza / Task 1 & 2




Hey @mateodeza

Thanks for sharing the case study - I really like this design you’ve put together it looks like a chunk of a Gehry project. This would work pretty much perfectly if you have nice precise parts as with the Serpentine project.

The next step would be thinking about what types of new design languages might become possible if the challenge of knowing exactly where each component needs to be placed and oriented becomes trivial. A few ideas:

  1. By making part placement faster, you could conceivably add more parts and increase the resolution of your design. You could also introduce different types of parts (form, material, colour etc).
  2. It might also be possible to stack structures out of plane, or in multiple planes. Igor and Christoph’s Styx project in your precedent list starts thinking about this by stacking components both horizontally and vertically.
  3. I’ve commented on some of the other stacked case studies about the idea of stacking strips rather than stacking parts. This would be the opposite approach to 1) where you try to reduce the total number of parts in order to introduce more formal variation into the geometry of each individual part.
