Model

Graduate project: M.Arch 2013

Title: Memories repository – a vertical structure of the social space-time

ModelIn the project I would like to present the applied algorithm, which finds the best view from every floor of the 108-storey tower. The project model was printed 3D with usage of the gips powder.
Problem: I would like to have one view terrace on each floor of my tower. I have several good point to look at in Wrocław: The Cathedral of St. John, Rędziński Bridge, Renoma, Ślęża Mountain, sunset :). Where should I locate the terraces to have the best possible view at one of selected objects to look at? How it works?

Solution workflow:
//1 GEOMETRY OF THE TOWER
selecting the appropriate radius of the base, tower height, the story height and the degree of scaling accordingly to the height
1

//2 THE CLOSEST WALLS
each of the attractors (points to be clearly visible), finds the neareast wall on each floors of the tower
2

//3 SMALLEST ANGLE OF VIEW
each attractor already has found the nearest wall on each floor; / / 3.1 algorithm counts the viewing angles between the selected faces (N-normal vectors, each wall) and attractors (vectors V – from attractors to the nearest wall) / / 3.2 on each floor throws 6 results (number of attractors) / / 3.3 sorts the results by selecting the smallest angle between vectors N and V / / 3.4 on each floor is marked boxe’em one wall, where you can “see the best” one of the attractors

//4 CUTOUTS FOR VIEW TERRACES
with the resultant cake tower walls, with were selected by the algorithm, the view terraces are cut out
