M2:W1(Karsten Schmidt):Skype Meeting on Parametric Facade

The whole week鈥檚 work was to be completed with a聽parametric facade聽design for HPI biulding at ETH campus. The facade were to include both:the building鈥檚 surrounding and interior space functions. Students were divided into three working groups.聽Class聽and the concept of OOP聽were introduced. That gave an opportunity to design facade elements as instances of a single class or depending on the concept – several different classes. The last step was to produce and assemble... Read More
