suckerPUNCH: description of the project:
chris PRECHT: the core concept of the project is based on the perceptional principal of a smooth continuation of a line. this phenomenon describes the »phenomenal transparency« (colin rowe) already with two lines.
to generate a complex parametric system of intersecting and overlaying lines, a dynamic spline tool was used. after creating a catalogue of several parametric models, the most successful was chosen. every single hairline was translated in the building structure of a shopping-mall.
locations in the diagram where several lines accumulate are translated into webs within the bone-structure. all building elements are formed out of one continuous surface and create one topological heterogeneous space for a shopping mall.
