This project was built in collaboration with Prof. Kristina Shea. We took structural models generated in EifForm as a starting point from which to apply constructive rules. An EifForm model generates structural designs of triangular surfaces arranged in non-orthogonal patterns. We took points data from starting models as a basis from which to generate new elements in a specific arrangement from a library of elements.
