Implementation of branching systems: the organizational potential of branching is used as a tool to unfold a prototypic canopy structure developed upon a series of parametrically controlled catenary truss surfaces.
The branching tree works as an abstract organizational machine where the parametrization of its very geometry allow to investigate several differentiated configurations exploring various degrees of porosity of the structure as well as multiple articulation of the internal partitions.The parametric setup allows the alteration of the geometrical arrangement of the tree updating, at the same time, the truss surfaces.

how did you make the catenary curves and surfaces in catia?

Marco Vanucci said...

yes the surfaces were generated with Digital Project from approximated catenary curves.
