Elasticity – Alex Grasser

  • Description
  • Elasticity is a collection that explores the ambiguity of discrete continuity in architecture.
    Elasticity is a tectonic, generative system that combines simple, discrete parts into an elastic relationship between part and whole, creating a discrete and continuous elastic form. A form that celebrates the continuity of digital variation while respecting a discrete approach to a digital whole.
    It is a generative follow-up to the project CM.CollabWood, where the same parts were embedded in a real-time participatory architectural environment, where clusters of parts were placed by participants in real-time in collective design sessions to create tangible collective open forms.

    • press s or g and wait for recalculation & download to finish
    • enjoy elasticity :)
    This token may not work on mobile(!), but it allows exporting .png and .gif (see controls) to enjoy elasticity on different displays or mobile. Tested on Mozilla, Chrome, Safari. Created with P5js & p5.createLoop
