This course was an introduction to parametric modeling and its techniques, focusing on exploring the advantages of this logic in architecture. To fully achieve the software's capabilities, it was not only important to represent the project digitally, but to translate it physically to built form. This project uses the logic of the voronoi pattern, commonly found in nature, for the aesthetic and spatial organization. Studying and understanding this pattern then allowed the two-dimensional graphic to become a three-dimensional object and implemented into a wall. This wall is not only aesthetically beautiful but also increases the rigidness and strength of a traditional wall due to its cellular arrangement.
