  • make your own topology?

    ooooh, a double entry today.

    I've spent a good few hours trying to figure out how to make a point curve a certain way in Rhino. I always seem to want to do the exact thing that falls in the cracks between two different tools. Can anyone recommend a good Rhino resource? books or advanced tutorials?

    Script libraries would be cool too.

    We finished up the INstallation project for studio (photos are STILL on their way) and the final pinup involved proposing a final version (though unrealized). I focused on making a very clear proposal, at the expense of my presentation and the actual design in the three days we had to do it. Of course I got banged for that, but it could have been worse. Our representation course (required for all Level I's) is focusing on diagraming (Tufte, et all.) and is by design running extremely parallel to studio. It's all about parametrics folks and the final diagram presentation of The Intervention is Monday. I'll post what I come up with then. It's interesting to consider diagramming as distortion. How the parametrics of Graphs and maps can be distorted by linking and un-linking certain metrics. I've just started some research into Mathmatical topologies as related to surface wrapping and discovered just how vast and abstract that field is.
    Has anyone brought this strongly into architectural design yet?
    As a technique of computer modeling?

    cheers

  • Admin. commitment

    Interesting comments on the site about MIT's head search. Mostly quiet murmurs about it around here. Some student reps in the search have expressed surprise, but definately were not privy to all things impacting the decision. A lot of the debate seems to have come down to commitment. Taking...


  • Phenomena (Do Doo do doo do)

    What's been keeping this Level I busy in the two weeks since his last posting? Nothin but the two usual culprits: studio and everything else. Fernando Domeyko first project was to create an installation along the topic of INHABITATION. one week to find a site and create something, critique, then...


  • MIT starts Spring

    Come one, come all, this is the blog to know and love. Step up and witness an amazing transformation of perception and intention. Join in and discover architecture through the eys of a complete loon. That's me. I plan to use this blog to sort out the things i'm seeing hearing learning fearing and...


  • Orienting within Orientation

    Whew, this is kind of test... much like the rest of this week. It feels like orientation is kind of a misnomer as all the info intended to ground me just pointed me in 18 new directions....
