Parametric Patterns – Scaling


The module is scaled and arrayed within the model to produce variations of the facade pattern. By moving the number slider, the scale factor of both the inputed reference curves are changed. These scaled curves are then arrayed according to the scale factor. For example, if the original pattern is an array of 15 hexagons in the X axis and 9 in the Z axis, a scale factor of .5 would reduce these numbers by half. The result would be a pattern which much more dense.

Pattern Studies







1.  Create base grid within boundary






2.  Sketch hexagon pattern by extending diagonal curves to edge





3.  Sketch secondary diagrid pattern by triangulating hexagon vertices



4.  Secondary diagrid pattern



5.  Adjust top edge of pattern and clean up edges



6.  Extract hexagon from initial grid



7.  Extracted hexagon grid



8.  Triangulate hexagon by connecting verticies to area centroid



9.  Tertiary pattern

Star-like Patterning




This modeling exercise involved a pattern found in indigenous Vietnamese weaving techniques with bamboo. The pattern was further deconstructed through a series of strips that are organized into several layers and horizontal/vertical connections. This creates a module that can be stacked, with interior glass panels that can be interchanged to create a more kaleidescopic effect.
