Network Pattern Study by Jasmine Li

Created by Jasmine Li

Move the mouse to create random nodes; hover the cursor in one place to densify network connections. Click to redraw.

As time elapses, new threads are drawn, densifying the field, while others seem to fade away, suggesting the erasure of these paths. The sequence creates the illusion of growth and decay.

Rural Landscape by Liangjie Wu

Created by Liangjie Wu

The script models the traditional agriculture pattern in Linpan, on Chengdu Plain, Sichuan, China. A circular grid system is found where the center is the cluster of traditional residential houses. Click to generate new patterns.

Hong Kong's Shrinking Harbor by Hyun
Bae and Yeung Shin

Created by Woon Hyun Bae and Yeung Shin

Expand the window for full view

The script models the expanding urban fabric at Hong Kong's Victoria Harbar. Once 2.3 km wide, the water is now 910 meters at the narrowest. The waterfront edge has had a progressive growth, producing districts of varying urban density. With the two patterns eventually colliding, the colored fluctuating strips suggest the utilization of the interstitial spaces as possible ways to further colonize the new districts.

Skateboard City by Jasmine Li and

The LONGBOARDER acts upon the urban grid by
forging new paths without thought of consequence. This forms a new boundary between
what is accepted and what is controversial.
How can the city counteract the LONGBOARDER?
How can the city utilize the new city grid
paved by the LONGBOARDER?

In this SHORTCUT scenario, the LONGBOARDER desperately cuts through the grid by crossing city blocks, plazas, courtyards, and maybe even, traffic lights. Left click to generate new routes; right click to reset.

Urban Divisions by Tansy Mak

The script models the development patterns at Wadong, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea, 15 miles north-west of Seoul. Move the cursor to change the recursive branching angels (60 to 90 degrees for suburban division patterns).

Jiangxinzhou Development by Hua Ye

Created by Hua Ye

Click to generate road and building patterns

Jiagxinzhou is an island near downtown Nanjing, China. Its development texture is influenced by the linear shape of the island, and the connection to the mainland. An street system of linear extension can be found based of the main road starting from the port. This script represents the sequence of road system and the buildings in an abstract way.

Barcelona Cell by Woon Hyun Bae

Created by Woon Hyun Bae

Press to reveal the inner court space

Barcelona is a grid city composed of square blocks which are 45 degrees cut in the corners. The exercise plays with the size of the cuts to distort the field of square blocks, so to create a gradient of open spaces according to the mouse position.

Picture Window House by Ryan
Carrington

Created by Ryan Carrington

Expand the window to see the full screen.

The program has the user controlling an artificial light source which can be thought of as the “sun.” When the light source is placed over a room in the plan of the house, the room lights up and when the light source moves away from the room, it returns to it’s initial state of darkness. The house consists of 2 floors and to represent both of the floors simultaneously I programmed the image to switch between floors depending on if the mouse is being dragged or not.

Robinson House by Rachel Bacus

Expand the screen to see the full window.

Click and drag in the two interior volumes to draw walls. Press spacebar to clear screen.

The intention of the program was to investigate the geometric language of the house through two different approaches. In the first approach the user is able to draw L shaped walls within the first volume freely. In the second main volume the user can generate the actual plans by drawing two vertical lines that begin to generate the plan as the walls get longer. This volume shows the hierarchy of the walls in the house.

Farnsworth House by David Monnar

Created by David Monnar

Drag the mouse to interact with the elevation of the house by Mies van der Rohe. Press and drag to paint over in white.

"There has been much said about the unique property of Farnsworth House to blend harmoniously with the landscape. However this behavior becomes more evident during winter and continues to change upon different seasons of the year.
Inspired by the intrinsic reaction of the house to the context, I created an interactive animation that interplays between the levels by which the house is concealed or revealed."
