5th Year Portfolio

On 18, Jul 2011 | No Comments | In Architecture | By tamthientran

5th year statement of purpose. It is a fancy way of saying show yourself to us in 20 pages or I like to see it as a maximum of 8.5″ x 11″ x 20 = 1870 sq in.

It’s been a while since I designed anything for myself. And it feels good to abuse the laser cutter at Gensler for my own purposes.

Perforation Study

On 27, May 2011 | No Comments | In Architecture, Gensler | By tamthientran

Perforated Wall Sample

Using grasshopper, I created a definition for a perforated wall design. The client preferred the design to not look like it was computer generated. So the question – how do I use a computer program to design something that does  not look  computer generated. After multiple iteration this is perforated wall design that made its way through the selection process.

Each Line was divided into equal distances and the points randomly move up and down between a range based on the line above it. From there the points are connected to create new lines. Each with various wave lengths and periods, which are all generated randomly. Within the intersection of the lines, the perforations are found. To limit the amount of perforations, I coded in conditional statements to weave out ones that are too large or too small. After that, I cleaned up the grasshopper definition for the final wall shape.

After looking at the perforated wall design, I started to remember Cy Twombly’s scribbles. “Each scribble was thought out,” said Terry Hargrave. Below is one of Cy Twombly’s paintings.
