suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
ludovico LOMBARDI: craft_id researches legibility in complex urban scenarios thrived on formal and spatial architecture coherence. diversity and variance reconfigure complex organisation on multiple scales, articulating highly integrated systems in ordered composition the design proposal challenges urbanism to find alternatives to predetermined grid parcelling land, using computational fluid dynamics as a tool to achieve highly integrated, coherent urban systems within complex and differentiated architectural fields for the shanghai expo 2010 site and beyond 2010.
this urban proposal correlates density, verticality, and vast open spaces as the fluid distribution of parametrically generated patterns of self-similar figures for a variety of blended programs, landscapes, infrastructures, and expo pavilions.behavioural patterns and information embedded in fluid dynamics are integrated by research on space composition and form, based on relation between object and field and variance between parts, which install differences in degree and kind in the elements of the proposed cityscape within an overall coherent order.
