Lost in Translation: Towards an Automated Description of John Portman’s Domestic Architecture

Lost in Translation: Towards an Automated Description of John Portman’s Domestic Architecture

Ligler, Heather; Economou, Thanos;

Artigo Completo:

The prevalent mode of shape grammar output is a two-dimensional drawing grammar. For architectural applications, these twodimensional shape rules can hold a variety of interpretations in three-dimensional space. This work translates an existing grammar from a manual two-dimensional drawing grammar to an automated three-dimensional building grammar to explore the challenges and opportunities that this translation suggests in the larger context of shape computation. The case study considered here is a grammar interpreting John Portman’s architectural language as defined by the house Portman identifies as emblematic of his design principles, his 1964 personal residence Entelechy I.
