Curling landscapes

Reverse engineering Ari Weinkle

A generative design project to push computers graphics in a direction of using algorithms to generate organic patterns. By adjusting any of the algorithms variables new shapes evolve forming a variety of different landscapes with natural growth traces.

Process

The projects main challenge was to break away from all traditional workflows by introducing a full Python language scripting approach. Many experimental approaches were tested to build a  fast system that can generate various versions over a short period of time without reducing complexity.

Result

After achieving satisfying results many worthy conclusions have been gained for future generative design projects. 

The project was inspired by some earlier works of: Ari Weinkle
