This series of prints I made during my experimentation with code.
I used “Gradient descent” and “Marching Cubes” algorithms.
First, I created a mesh in rhino with a script. Then render the model in 3ds max. Then a bit of color correction in Photoshop.
In massive series i combine lines and isosurfaces.
In minimal series i decided to show only isosurfaces.
This Canadian house by Patkau Architects is anchored to a rock by steel rods so that it treads lightly on the ground and cantilevers above the Pacific Ocean.
Tula House by Vancouver-based Patkau Architects was designed as the main home for a married couple on Quadra Island, nearly six hours’ drive north of Vancouver. It also doubles as informal headquarters for their organisation, Tula Foundation, which supports healthcare and environmental initiatives.
The remote cliff-top house rests 13 metres above the water, and is surrounded by spectacular and varied scenery. There is a forest behind, and the Strait of Georgia in front, where the owners can also see the mountains of British Columbia in the distance.
"The topography of the site is highly irregular, and the prospects are diverse," said architect John Patkau. "One site is actually many sites."
The house replaces a dilapidated cottage and attempts to realign the site with its surroundings, according to architects, whose other projects include a cluster of temporary shelters for ice-skaters and designs for six earth-sheltered houses on land surrounding Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater house.
Land that had been extensively filled in was removed to reveal the site’s natural terrain, and native vegetation that had been stripped away was re-planted. The house is designed as a single-storey building to provide a more direct and intimate connection with the landscape, and features a moss-covered roof to help it blend in with moss-covered basalt hills nearby.
Located in central Mumbai, our client builds a 6 story building, 2 for each apartment, we simultaneously perform 3 interior design projects for 3 different clients, all from the same family; parents, (an older couple) and 2 families of young couples with children, each with different needs and personalities, this is how we address the same space with different distributions, each had a different reason on which interiors are designed, a concept far from typical housing in India, a space for living inside, contrasting with its urban context, with its social environment.
Specifically in the SDM apartment, after a talk with each member of the family, we got a well defined program based on the customs of each user and each space, the staircase located at the center of the apartment. It was designed as a sculpture in the space with more light and natural ventilation; with very subtle lines but protagonist of the space, it can be seen almost from anywhere in the public areas, it becomes the articulator of spaces and is replicated in other architectural elements such as blinds and ceiling; every space, every detail meets a special character of the users, every color, every picture, every kitchen utensil, every linen was specifically chosen to complete this project and to make it unique.

My obsession of documentation has became a major influence in my artistic practice. Each work represents a little piece of me that has been archived, otherwise may be forgotten through time. Works can contain fragments of memories, moments within time, or internal struggles that may still be on-going or have passed through life. In order to fully express the complexity of the subject matter, I juxtapose elements within reality in a surrealistic manner. In this way, I create a photographic image that captures the both visual and emotional factor of the subject matter. The works are presented to the viewers in hope of evoking their own life’s details and find beauty in the little details that make up who they are.
Henke Schreieck - Kufstein university building, Kufstein 2001. A unique double facade of operable full height terrace-like wood doors behind a glazed skin with operable vent panels provides optimal thermal performance while allowing classrooms to feel open to the exterior. Depending on the time of day, the glazing either reflects the surroundings or accentuates the inner timber structure. Photos (C) Margherita Spiluttini.
