    working on our parametric furniture gallery project (inspired by domino)...

    here's a render of the latest...

    still resolving some of the geometries and working on refining the parametrics...

      Ugh...another one of these projects?

      Sorry to be catty, but let the Denari and the filet forms go...just let it go.

      everything's been done before. and i chose the single planes as the major solid tectonics are formed from a single bent plane. the filleted edges are done to help demonstrate the continuity...

      sure, it's been done. but at least i know this is something that i can execute well. i could bullshit something that's crazy and weird and pass it off as "original" and try to justify it with an assorted array of made up archi-babble, but i'd rather do something nice and elegant that works even if it has been done.

      rendering looks good... but probably at least 1/3 of class tried those denari curves last year. The reviewers are going to be more interested in something innovative and conceptually strong than "nice and elegant". Save that argument for second year.

      what did u use to pull of that render, software-wise?

      how important is structure?

      sorry, but reminds me of the mid 90's

      everything HAS NOT been done before

      i completely agree with bryden and sameolddoctor. i see some of the same stuff every now and then here at columbia...denari on both coasts!

      Speaking of Columbia, Reinhold Martin mentioned in one of his seminars that Denari actually lifted the world sheet from some obscure 20th Century architect (as most do)...I can't remember off-hand as that was a few years ago, but if anyone can help me with the name here, my fuzzy memory would be grateful.

      AC4A...Perhaps it could be something to find out and pursue to help provide some legitimate understanding to the formalism you are looking to employ.

      Pfff, don't worry about being accused of doing something that has been seen before - like you say - nice and elegant is fine.
