Oblique Circulation 3

My eyes were immediately drawn to this image when I opened Pinterest. I’m an architecture student and this computer-generated building looks almost magical to me. As an architectural student I need to think about how to divide up space when I design. Using algorithm to do the work might not be the most functional solution but the result is definitely interesting. The artists tries to show circulation around the building through computer-generated curves. I didn’t find what algorithm the artist used but this reminds me of Grasshopper, a plug-in for Rhino that architect students often uses. Grasshopper is designed for parametric modeling. Using grasshopper to generate geometries is like using grasshopper’s language to tell it to do certain things.
The artist is Benjamin Dillenburger and the work title is Oblique Circulation 3. You can see more of his work here.
