Peter VIKAR & Al ATAIDE: “Flight Forms” revisits early-’90s animation ideas of architecture in the Robotic Simulation environment of SCI-Arc. Inspired by Thomas Eakins’s Chronophotography studies of moving bodies in space our initial starting point was a “drone” that can fly independently. Based on its motion, nature of behavior, and momentum we have created a 3-D visual catalog, and motion library. This library was then placed in the robotic simulation environment where the flight paths were controlled to generate forms.
