Christoph Bader & Dominik Kolb (deskriptiv) are currently working on an algorithm as an application that produces procedural sculptures ready for 3D printing.
The software, currently designed for the Microsoft Surface Pro 2 tablet, allows for the creation of complex symmetrical shapes using a set of pre-defined criteria. The software transforms simple input geometry into complex geometry through a series of procedural "generations". Each generation can be controlled using a set of parameters such as rotation and offset. The output includes a consistent and clean topology of objects including a closed 2-manifold geometry ready for 3d printing. See video below.
In their continued effort to seek out an equilibrium between man-made and nature, MAN-NAHĀTA is the latest project by OXMAN (previously Mediated Matter Group at the MIT Media Lab). The project is a top-down master planning braved by bottom-up-design in the place where the grid was once a garden.
