Scripting Eiffel tower extension

Generative Design.

"The design is based on a generative script, creating branches out of the primary structure of the tower. Inspired by the structural concept of Eiffel of three-dimensional cross bracing beams, the script unfolds along curved lines the “DNA” of the tower. The script used the existing structure at the top of the tower ( a 10 by 10 meters cube) to generate 3 structural weaves, which are interconnected. These layers are combined to create a woven complex, which is based on the redundancy and the non-repetition of patterns to increase its structural performance. In opposition with modern engineering (based on the concept of repetition and optimization), the project for the Eiffel tower extension is based on an alternative model of high performance."

Pensa che mentalità aperta: far rivivere in maniera contemporanea il loro monumento storico per eccellenza! Un'estensione (se pur temporanea) in carbonio sul Colosseo o sul Duomo di Milano...chissà tra quanto succederà!

Finalmente qualcuno realizzerà un intervento architettoncio generato in scripting con una buona visibilità...sarà visto da tutto il mondo...sentiremo parlare di architettura generativa e scripting in TV...e magari nelle facoltà italiane...ummm

I was very like to play the Rohan online game, in my mind I can gave up all things but I can not gave up the rohan crone, it gave me the courage and the confidence, in the game I was very like to earn the rohan gold, but I also need to buy rohan crone, but the same time I know a website sell the cheap rohan crone, so if you want to buy, I suggest you come here.
