Expressive Form: A Conceptual Approach to Computational by Kostas Terzidis

By Kostas Terzidis

With the elevated use of pcs, structure has stumbled on itself in the course of a plethora of attainable makes use of. This ebook combines theoretical enquiry with useful implementation delivering a special standpoint at the use of pcs with regards to architectureal shape and layout. Notions of exaggeration, hybrid, kinetic, algorithmic, fold and distort are tested from varied issues of view: historic, mathematical, philosophical or serious. Generously illustrated, this ebook is a resource of idea for college students and pros.

The identifiable characteristics of morphing are both unified multiplicity and intermediate distinctiveness. The process of morphing is not necessarily a linear interpolation of all components at the same time. Orchestration is a term used to describe the actions of selecting, assigning, directing, and evaluating the performance of objects, which participate in the morphing process. Transformations can happen concurrently or at different pace. The result is a truly dynamic design space, the behavior of which becomes the responsibility of the architect.

The length, location, and interconnection between folding limbs allow more useful, suitable, and desirable motions. For instance the thumb, as a folding element, is grown at a certain location off the palm to allow certain elaborate folding motions that result in better handling, touching, rotating, and feeling. 1 Ariadue’s thread: A thread can be folded and bent in such a way as to create a two-dimensional composition in nature. 1 The notion of equality negates the existence of two points labeled as “start” and “end” to be regarded as special.

Homogeneity is about similarity, uniformity, and continuity. Assemblage is a process and as such involves time as a measure of progress. Because of this association with time, assemblage is regarded as a finite process. In contrast, homogeneity is about a state, condition, or quality of form. It is not about the action of becoming but rather about the accomplishment of being. The lack of time implies eternity, infinity, and transcendency. Folding or bending are continuous and homogeneous transformations that preserve the integrity, continuity, and uniformity of the parts involved.
