As a part of the design of the ICRC visitor center in Geneva, Group8 architects, had planned a raw concrete ceiling. The structural constraints, as well as the acoustic constraints made it for a slightly too complex system to compute by hand. A custom software was developed in Processing to explore the relationships between the several ceiling elements (lights, fume escapes, acoustic elements, structure, water evacuation pipes, etc.). That allowed to place every element within the constraints specified by the structural engineer, as well as meet the requirements of the acoustic engineer.
