Advance Structure

Power Copying

Here are some iterations of origami surfaces. The challenge was (except the manual powerCopying...) how to set up spikes NORMAL to the surface. Basically, those are done by manipulating sin curve functions (to control the curvature of surfaces). Deformation nodes are the followings.

-the span of sin curve
-number of waves
-repetition of waves
-height of the creases

-acceleration of curvature angle (by law)

By the way, I think FoG stands for Function of Graph. Better guess than Frank O Gehry...

Another pattern generation. It's from Yokohama Port Terminal by FOA.
