A video demonstrating automated design and model construction using Excel and Maya.
Buildable volumes are set out on an excel grid as '1' and void as '0'. The first level being the area within the site boundary. Each subsequent level of volumes is a product of the one beneath it, defined through a cellular automation relationship. This process allows form and total volume to be controlled precisely for large numbers of units.
This information is then fed into maya. Each volume is evaluated to determine its position within the model, the condition of its neighbors, its surrounding density etc. These conditions define what type of programme is built in that volume based on a set of rules collected from the thesis research into care provision.
A bespoke model is then produced, to the specific care requirments of the demographic and within the specific constraints of the site, that adheres precisely to the programmatic relationships required by the modern care community.
