Using Algorithmic Modeling to “Print” Smarter Fields

Combination planting—where certain crops are planted together to stave off pests or enhance taste—is as old as farming itself. But up until recently, it’s been difficult to be precise about where and how different crops can benefit from each other. Benedikt Groß, a UK-based interaction designer, is using algorithmic… » 7/05/13 3:01pm 7/05/13 3:01pm

Pure Emergence: Tom Beddard’s Amazing Fractal Architecture

Though we have previously covered the amazing fractal creations of Tom Beddard, we thought it would be worth revisiting his work to find some examples of his architectural explorations. As we’ve discussed many times, parametric modeling is becoming more popular in the architecture world, thanks largely to Patrik… » 6/14/13 3:49pm 6/14/13 3:49pm
