Frankly, I do not care if these models are buildable. They are uninteresting and unprovocative as images. As a-f mentioned, the operations Per uses to produce them are far from novel, and while yes, they are not to be found in an out-of-the-box version of AutoCad, they can be easily performed in programs such as Rhino, 3dMax, FormZ, Maya...anything more suited for modeling.

Per, you have found yourself in a crowd that wants to hear your ideas, but does not have the patience to endure a self-promoted fixation, which is more of a banal transformation tool than a visionary architectural polemic, from an individual who has little, to no awareness, of the circumstances and subjects of current architectural discourse. Whether appealing to you or not, Per, architecture is in part, an academic endeavor. You should curb the ego, offer some true incite, and understand the productivity in a non-unilateral conversation.

Now what's wrong with 16 bit ;))
Anyway replacing 20 different materials with one save the 19.
I mean then you "saved" the different profiles boards fittings and nails knees and bolts beside bricks ,with one material you acturly do things simpler, simpler with fewer materials one only.
With this material you can develob practical any structure where a honeycomb structures strength is an issue. Beside this I made 12 years ago today I develob building methods not boat designs and havn't done so for decades as years ago with computer programs and pen plotters to draw out the outlines full scale.
3D-HoneyComb is way different from the attitude forming boat hulls shaping the design and fit the sails, today the right link will be ;
Right link
right link
3D-Honeycomb was the ansver for anyone wanting a digital shaped hull, a building to , many nice structures would profit, if you don't want to make it cheap and easy don't use this.

Hi about

I would not say if this is a 3D-HoneyComb structure I do not think so as without frames meeting 90 deg, there are not much simpleness about it, way more difficult to acturly produce, compared somthing just cut flat it must be more expnsive to produce without a general assembly idear, but anyway the structure in the graphic is a shell structure, 3D-HoneyComb can produce that but also offer the floors and walls, a mesh structure do not. you can not expand that shell structure as a seperat building block containing spaces 3D-H can and do it easyer than anything working with computers. It is a Direct Link building method, no one can blame me for their bad designs, pick up a tool and decide to make the vorse scrap, why build a stinking hell, when you can make a heaven. ---- Sure there are a bit fanatism progressing my Pony, but realy shuldn't somone who belive architecture shuld be projected right and focus the Design towerds acturly Digital manufactoring have a voice today ,you want nice houses in a nice design and expect a swiss coo ku ,Man the future are not build in wooden logs there are not straw on the roof.
Unless this is the cast well for arguments we did not reach the moon (3D do not work we can't calculate the computer is drunk) just aswell realise, draw it 3D you have a gurantie it work not a gurantie it is beautifull.

Pixelhore I just do the tools, I am a designer not an architect.
Remember I have to tell you that there are different attitudes, the Lego Mind tradisional and replacing it all ,esp. the xpensive parts, with a plain cheap material, done with programs that follow very different leads. When I design it I work ontop the intire academic foundation ,how do you think CAD work good or bad ?
If you say 3D-HoneyComb is ugly it could be your own reflections ,not a material formed by somone with real skills, why shuld I provide the actural model, I am not a bookkeper but a designer, I make building methods I belive in hands-on rather than just paper paper I don't use paper for that.

youre right...we're all just insanely jealous of your incredible time saving, practical, beautiful, innovating, exciting, and motivating system of structure.... you figured us all out...

how'd you do it?? work and every other architect and designer in the god given world is nothing in comparison to your outstanding animations and renderings undoubtedly completed on that state of the art monster machine in your picture there.

man....just when i thought that those tablets we used in middle school were totally obselete...i'm throwing my stupid wireless mouse away as we speak...

i mean- even the connection details- although we cant see them whatsoever in any fashion at all anywhere in the renderings- they are so incredibly well thought out- just like- HEY- its JUST LIKE BUILDING A BOAT! note to self: i shall build a building with absolutely no drawings except a spinning gif file with terrible mapping and explain the validity of it's details in extra long and exceptionally bad grammatical html text- only posting images of real live wooden (small, mind you) boats as precedent for my qualifications as a "true artist and designer"

shall i go on in appraisal of your outstanding work per? i mean- the materials on your buildings- i'm sorry- "works of art... ...oh my... just speechless... while others laugh, i have seen your genius light- doubt not my software develobing friend- they will all come to see the truth of your magnificent work shortly.....

Al Jeff, with such great structure is proberly is right to look into 3D-HoneyComb's ability to let light pass from come directions at the same time covering 90 deg towerds that. Also such structure will be best in combined scale dtructures some making an outher framework others in maby different sheet material forming the combine of several scale and material framework.
Beside first forming the seats ontop usefull spaces must be a gain ,then the sliced Dome is an easy task in simple framework
A puzzlw building compoment framework leaving maneagable pieces would pay the expences ,true 3D-H is great for esp huge structures, even it also make use of cheap eco sheet materials for big or small, depanding if it is interiours or structure , you don't need to build high to be on the edge but a lookalike is easy to reconise, there are an idea to it among the resons in that, just making everything in one material shuld be argument enough ontop that come the new options in design and strength..

and yes- i do suffer a little. not from my designs or anyone else's for that matter. i suffer from closed minded people like yourself- sitting there judging and calling all of us close minded because we dont buy into half-thought dim-lit bullshit. i tend to call that objectiveness. freedom of speech, expression -including useful criticism. intelligence. all of which you choose to ignore- - in hopes of gaining some sort of prize at the end.

good luck.

Becaurse when you manufctor building frames by strait cutting sheet material with the simplest water or laser cutter, you at the same time make the assembly slots exact fit. Now remember that the building part that is automaticly generated carry a number and is in full size.

Per Corell

It is the N.C. codes for cutting the ready building frame not the non existing spaces around you produce the actural structure the assembly slots proberly can be made smarter or even intiligent please I promised that there are lots of develobment and I never said this is more than the point in a new direction.

el jeffe
Oct 6, 04 6:25 pm

I think I've got it now. Your system depends upon CNC manufacturing. This won't work with sheet material because sheet is worthless as a structural member (architecture scale) unless it is somewhow reinforced to prevent bending in the weak direction....which is solved by having the frames criss-cross often. So the real problem to be solved in your system is assembly of the frames, not how to fabricate them.
Pre-assembly of frames in the shop (panelization) would be important for cost reasons - so the question becomes how do you assemble the panels in the field. You would need some nifty connections.
At this point in thinking about it I just don't know what advantages (material cost, ease of assembly, span to depth ratios, elimination of trades, fire-resistance, ease of repair, ease of post-construction modifications) this system provides other than a theortical simplicity - but that's only for academics.

"You just proven that you know nothing about CAD, what you write is nonsense to a CAD profesional."

Well, if that's the best answer you can give to my remarks.... I work on a daily basis with AutoCAD, in a professional firm. I also write modeling tools with my own scripts in MELScript (Maya), based on post-graduate studies in differential geometry, engineering and alternative modernism. But this is only the architecture part, I used to work professionally as a C++ programmer before starting my architecture studies - so I'm also doing some of my own stuff in Processing and PureData (I doubt that you ever heard of these systems though). So if you think that I know nothing about this... actually, you remind me of "K'42 Karei" on the eu-gene maillist a few years ago, which actually was a computer program that gave arrogant and incomprehensible answers to valid critique and questions.

Oct 7, 04 6:09 am

Hey Per, maybe you for once can give a clear answer to the issue I raised in the post, before writing another sad piece on misunderstood Danish artists in the 30's. I give it to you again, here it is:

More irritating though, is that you somehow claim to have invented a structural system that is already in use! 45 degree rotation is not enough of an "innovation" to me, especially if the only thing it adds is to make the structure more weak.

Now that _you_ can not emagine, _could_ tell somthing about your emagination, you se out of 1000 who respond that this is exiting and fantastic ,there alway's be one who simply hate when somone show some skills, you seem to do so in a way that make the working life in many offices a hell, for anyone "who think he is somthing".

Davs Per,

du kan godt svare pa dansk, hvis du har problem med engelsk. Well never mind, it will propably only be minutes until this thread is frozen, since you always avoid answering to the questions people have - instead being hyper-aggressive to anyone criticizing 3D-H. One last note: yes, carbon fibre + epoxy has been used to make structures in architecture. See e.g. Wilhelmsons exhibition system in Frankfurt Messe - a highly interesting project because of the geometrical problems they had when manufacturing the panels. What one tends to forget though is that labour costs money, someone has to polish those ultra-smooth polystyren blocks (add to this the fact, that people making these things usually are paid very well). And well, they are often one-off moulds.

P.S. I love the way you say the pyramides were "cast"! Ikeda, Balmond and Conzett haven't taught me anything apparently.

a-f as you know I responded to each question, maby you can't "se" it but the ansver is obvious to 999 out of 1000 , --- the point is that "a picture say more than 1000 words.

Second, you point to the most extreme expensive solution ,in a process where there was a problem acturly solved with cheap sheet material just with a different attitude, you claim that epoxy panels is the solution , solution for what ; to make cheap houses no.
To make these, you need to turn upside down all our tradisionalism and investigate the new true digital options, and people like you shuld realise that fighting those "who think they are somthing" shuld not be done by bullying or with the useal usenet social harasment , realy epoxy floors make no places to live except in space and even there everyone who know, realise the problems with these materials and look for better and simpler solutions.
Now you cry for closing the tread, well check Captain Ok's promises of a bright future and the nonsense formulars ,do you think this make a family house or a flat that cost less than 4 million kroner for 100 sq.meters.
Your bid is to make it in epoxy as this make an interesting solution to very difficult structural problems, well what about making it in the cheapest material avaible ,what about realising that when you talk about real work ,then somone who can build a boat with closed eyes must know better, what about ansvering yourself --- I made many questions you never ansvered I could pick line by line from this tread , but maby you think architecture shuld keep on dreaming, in that case check out what results Captain Ok maneaged, I mean this contest was years ago where are the actural results of that ?

el jeffe
Oct 8, 04 11:39 am

"The project IS the drawing"

Not if you're the client shelling out the cash it isn't.
I think architects get into big problems when they think that the drawing is their project - the drawing is a tool to complete the project. Even if the project is conceived as an un-built exercise - the drawing is still just a tool to complete the project - the project in that case is an argument. This is exactly Per's situation - however he insists that the argument is grounded in construction but he won't cross the line to prove it and he won't listen to others with experience in architectural-scaled construction who are trying to help him cross the line.

Oct 8, 04 12:12 pm

el jeffe
Just to clarify what I was meaning: if you give your client a crapy drawing it's going to be very hard to convince him that your project is good. I don't mean that one has to consider the drawing or the image as an end, but that the only way to have something to happen is to present convincing drawing (or models). Only through precise and efficient representation the conceptor can clarify his original idea before it can get build, and to me, most architect tend to forget about that, on the contrary. The drawing is not the goal, but it is a snapshot of your idea, and the only presence of a project before it gets build.
If this presence is weak, inefficient and ugly, you have good chances to get nothing better in the end.

At times, it seems the most important part of the Architects' day is to convince the client. This, to many, seems to be the architectural act. What is it about the act of making the client say "yes" over ride the design process and even the building process. Could it be, then, that when the AIA hijacked the word "architect", they hijacked the wrong word. How does "convincing" work into the definition of architecture: archi-techne?
