Reciprocal Frames on Platonic Polyhedrons

I had a look at reciprocal frames, which are a very beautiful geometric challenge. To start with the basics, I applied them onto the platonic polyhedrons, which are by definition symmetrical on every edge and plane. This means I don’t

Propabalistic Architectural Design

For the Smart Geometry Conference 2013 in London, I was working with the two PAD Cluster, Henrik Malm and John Stack Ross, helping to set up a parametric workflow in Generative Components. smartgeometry.org PAD addresses the sg2013 challenge Constructing for Uncertainty by coupling probability theory with parametric architectural and
