marine museum

design of a marine life museum using parametric design.

marine life musem
A marine life museum done as a study of form through the use of ruled surfaces to be constructed with concrete. The project is an attempt to create a structure which takes its inspiration from marine biology and strectches the design bounderies of  high preformance concrete  . This is a parametrically designed model displaying various possibilities of digital design. The process begins with a simple box which is then manipulated. After finding the form of the object , the process of parametrical analizing based on geometrical algorithms.
form finding and optimisation for basic shape of the building. beggining with a simple cube which is then twisted and parameterized to acheive a buildable shape made from hypar surfaces.
The shape is exploded into its shell shurfaces which are then individually analyzed and segmentized acoording to needs.
the algorithm uses the base surface in order to create columns in an  array which matches the hypar surface. This allows automatic changes in the columns according to the shape. It also allows addition and reduction of columns according to structural analasys algorithms without having to change the basic model shapes.
converting the shell into a hyperboloid structural system.
computized parametric segmentation allows automatic addition or reduction of segments according to need without manipulating the original surface's form.
