eVolo Competition Entry
The following is my entry for the eVolo Skyscraper Competition:
the tower is a commentary on man’s self destructive ways. rather than let humans design architecture, protocol will be used to design the ideal space for each inhabitant. the protocol will be a set of 180 trajectories that build in a partially prescribed, partially random manner constantly adjusting variables to avoid intersection. the protocol is capable of generating an infinite variety of towers, with the ability to learn from its mistakes and reject poor iterations. the physical manifestation of the script will be the robotic automaton. the automaton leaves a trail of woven polycarbonate fiber that becomes the structure for the building. once the structure has been created, the automaton uses the structure to build vertically. the completed building will encourage interaction amongst residents by clustering them into neighborhoods, or pods. these clusters of people will create a more harmonious environment and hopefully will prevent the residents from indulging in their destructive ways.
