Architecture Ideation Lattices 2

The drawing shows an example of how an “Ideation Lattice” is derived from the “Dynamic Sphere” geometry – and then how an architectural structure is extracted from the lattice. ┬áIn this example, connecting sphere centers creates the lattice. The sphere packing is the “Golden Ratio” packing. Software is Rhino 3D. Once the lattice is generated three-dimensional forms of all sorts can be extracted from it – where the forms will all be within the Golden Ratio. See my paper on the subject, “Dynamic Geometry,” also a chapter in my upcoming book to be published by Thames and Hudson April 2018 “3D Thinking in Design and Architecture from Antiquity to the Future.”
