091215_Mesh SubDivision

"The climber of facades must make the best use of every ornament." Karl Kraus

Moving away from the description of nurb surfaces by mean of UV coordinates this experiment represent the possibility to use mesh planes and realtive vertices to extract points and apply Delaunay algorhythm. The input surface is therefore subdivided in a serie of planar triangles which form the base for the construction of the component geometry.
The components are parametrically controlled by 6 points which define the triangular component, maximizing or minimazing their surface area.

Above some images showing the build-up process:
-surface "occupation" with point cloud
-subsequent "connection" through triangulated mesh
-"population" process through planar components

Below the Grasshopper definition.
