Surface Generation 2:22:08

Two images of the progress of surface generation.  The surface now provides occupation and user interaction on a variety of levels while responding to site conditions.  The fenestration and connections still need to be resolved.

Tesselion uses a method of planar quadrilateral meshes to tessellate complex surfaces.  The following is a diagram showing the stages of panelization.


The following image demonstrates the range of possibilities using the Tesselion method of panelization.  The middle range shows the target surface generation for construction in mid May.  The surface criteria fall between limitations in timeline, budget, and small scale structural concerns, otherwise practically any surface can be constructed using the Tesselion method.
