Glass-Branching

Generative Glass 2013 : Prototype 3

The idea is to use the branching logic of Lindenmayer system (L-system) as a means to digitally compute the generative aggregation of our proposed glass component. An iterative design process, informed by hands-on glassblowing experiments, further led us to the development of our final 3-Type Branching Units. By varying the rules and parameters of our customized digital system, different possible collective configurations could be generated and then assembled as architectural entities (e.g. ceiling, columns, walls…etc).
