This project intended to take surfaces generated in Maya’s nDynamics package and, through a series of grasshopper scripts, articulate them to be responsive to local climatic conditions. The generative process for the overall form of the nested shells was based upon the constraints exhibited within the diagram for Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion. A software suite including three different modelers, two engineering packages, a number of custom built scripts, and several post production programs was utilized in order to develop the final product. Each step was catalogued and turned into a comprehensive presentation which was then given at the Design Factory at Aalto Univerity in Helsinki, Finland in the Spring of 2010. This project was particularly interested in the intentional misuse of various softwares in order to generate surprising and unexpected formal results.
